Xj Help diagnose driveline noise post-lift? (Durham, NC)

Hey guys,

I live in Durham. My 98 XJ has some noise issues going on after putting an OME lift in: Link

Can anyone help me out and give this a listen? Would be happy to stop by whenever it's convenient.

Btw, happy to help out with installing stuff or contributing my limited Jeep knowledge... if anyone needs a hand in/around Durham, give me a shout.

I'm in Durham but I don't know that my limited experience would be much help with this. Pretty shocking that you'd have that much trouble from a 2" lift. I'm sure the guys at ECGS would be able to figure it out pretty quick, if you want to go the "pay somebody else" route, but that's never as much fun! See ya around town?

Thanks katuah... was planning on just taking it to a local mechanic if all else fails, but ECGS would certainly be better set up to look into this. I definitely wasn't expecting these sorts of driveline vibe issues after the lift... guess it would have been too easy if everything had gone smoothly (no pun intended). I also think the lift ended up being taller than advertised, probably closer to 3".

Did notice today that there's much less (if any) noise with a full tank of gas and 240 lbs of concrete bags in the trunk. Guess that points to a shaft angle that is too steep.

See you around Durham... PS, any good spots to do a little light wheeling around here, besides Uwharrie?
