how much to drop carrier bearing with 4 inch lift

I put on my procomp 4 inch lift this weekend. and am noticing some vibrations when starting out. I did some research and found i need to drop my carrier bearing but i can not seem to find an exact answer. So how much should i drop mine with a 4 inch lift?

I dropped mine 5/8" and it cured the takeoff shudder.

I have a 4" on mine. I bought a bracket from rough country (only because thats what my lift is) for a 4" and works well

there are carrier bearing drop kits, one up offroad also makes one. also, if you just go get your drive line balanced it is possible to sure the vibration. i have driven many fords and they have all shuddered, mine included until i dropped my driveline and have to have it rebuilt and also rebalanced, and even with a 6in lift i didn't have a vibration, although i still would like to drop my carrier bearing.
