Thinking about this for driveline vibration

I'm in the process of talking via email with this place about a single drive shaft for the vibration from takeoff and to see if this will take care of the bounce from the rear at 50mph. I had zero issues at stock ride height and got the bounce and slight vibration at take off after lifting it.

Exactly what I was thinking...driveline angle isn't right.

He actually never got back with me. Kinda disappointing.. Yeah i did play with the shimming. i had about an inch of shimming and still had it a little but was going in the right direction, which is way more than the 1/4" for every 1" of lift rule of thumb. I took it to my local mechanic and had some stuff done and told him about the issue. I had him change the u-joints and said I wanted it balanced also. There was a weight that broke off of it and had a ding or two in one of the shafts. After 4 weights were added and the new u joints installed I rides waaaaaaay better. I can still barely feel it which makes me think I need to do some fine tuning with the shimming now that the shaft is balanced. We will see..

Yah ive messed with my shimming and crap. it made it ok, but now mine has all of sudden gotten extremely worse between 65 and 75.
I haven't got under the truck yet and taken a peek....Id just assume go to a driveline shop and get a one piece driveshaft made maybe....don't know of any place around Kansas city that does it
