drive shaft vibration question!

I have a 94 F350 diesel 7.3 . A while back I did a 4" lift kit . I then started to get a vibration off the drive shaft . So I lowered the yolk 3/4" and it made it better. I don't want to mess it up so I ask. How low can I lower the yolk without stressing the u joints? what is the proper adjustment to correct the vibration. If lowering the transmission is an option on these trucks ,the by how much? thanks fellas.

Definitely check the carrier bearing angle.


And fellas, it's YOKE. Yolks are in the center of eggs.
