I'm happy!! and a little worried

I just put my new set of tires yesterday, and some adjustments to my rig, turns out that what I thought was a 2.5"lift with about 1" shackles ended up with a total lift of about 4.5". It feels BIG. The only people I can see in my rear view mirror are bus and truck drivers. Pictures coming soon.

My only problem is vibration, can't get rid of it.
How long can I ride it with a medium vibration?? I mean u-joints will break but how often?? I don't have the money for a SYE yet. So it going to have to work like this for a couple of months.

I got a 3.5 inch BDS lift and it was really really tall (like maybe 4 or 5) my dad almost didn't let me drive it home. But it setteled down and now its around 3 or 3.5, 2 months later so i'd say give it some time if you can stand the vibrations.
