I Clean my injectors religiously but I probably will next oil change. Do you run it the whole life of the oil?

Background: True 3 inch lift measured center of wheel to stock fender. Terrible vibes ever since lift. I did tires and lift all at once so no ability to pinpoint. Been trying to find a solution for my 48-62 vibes for months. 2WD. 97. Always assumed drive line angles wouldn't be a factor since it was a 2WD.

So today I went down to ACE. Bought (4) M10x1.50x50mm high grade bolts, (4) washers, (4) 1 inch thick aluminum spacers and made a "Transfer Case Drop" to go on my 2WD AW4 crossmember, which most of you know is similar on my 2WD, it just lacks that other spinny thing...

I live in the South and so does my Jeep so the studs twisted right out with the double nut trick. No heat or PB needed. I loctited it up, waited for it to dry and boom. 90% percent reduction in vibes.

Its a DD. I have no plans to spend the money on a SYE and I don't need the clearance. Of course shimming would work, but I did this in the ACE parking lot in 15 minutes. After replacing both motor mounts, the tranny mount, u joints, and getting the tires rotated and balanced twice, I couldn't be happier.

I get to replace my alternator. How do I go about getting the belt back on with no tensioner pulley?

So im getting a bad clunking sound at completely random times. I got scared and thought it was my engine knocking but im pretty sure its not. Also experiencing some vibes for the past month or so. I wouldn't say death wobble as it is not that bad. Happens at 40mph plus, ranges from barley noticeable to where the steering wheel actually starts shaking a good amount. I have been noticing it feeling slightly "looser" than normal when going down the road. Best description i can think of would be as if something were weighing down the read end, creating less pressure on the front tires. Idk what to think. Just tightened everything like two weeks ago.

Oh and i friend of mine has a yj thats a street queen he bought built. Apparently the rear grenaded on the highway. Cant tell what actually happened because he knows very little mechanically. Needless to say he may be looking to sell it. I really want to buy it as it and flip fpr a profit.

First thing that comes to my mind is a broken steering box brace and a dry rear driveshaft slip joint. Not sure how much of that transfers over to MJs though.

Lol yeah im lost. I got it aligned right after it was on the road, and never had any issues after that. Pre alignment if you hit a bump you were done. Its been almost a year come january that its been on the road. I guess its just time for things to start wearing out
