Icon 7" lift with steering wheel vibration

I have Icon 3" hanger with Icon 4" leafs in front with 9" OUO traction block system in rear. I have a little vibration in my steering wheel when starting out in gears(i have 6 speed).
I am wondering if I get a new TOM WOOD drive shaft, will it work with the 7" of lift and 8.5" or do you have to keep the same height of lift when getting a new driveshaft?
I am thinking of putting back on the 4.5 front hanger with the 4" leafs so it will be 8.5" of lift instead of 7", and only want to have to buy one driveshaft. Not sure how this works.

How is the carrier bearing shimmed at the moment? That will need to be adjusted more. However if you have the extra cash a one piece driveshaft is an excellent mod. One of the best things I have done to my 01. Some reason or another even with different shims I always had a vibration.

And if you get a one piece it will not matter if it is for a 7" lift or 8.5" lift. It will work for either.

The shop that put lift on didnt shim carrier bearing at all. Not sure why, because I gave them the shim's in case they needed it, and they are closed today....Ii will be contacting them monday for sure though.

Thanks brother! Ah and that can be the cause for sure. Get them to put that on after all it's what you paid for.
