Vibes: annoying or real problem?

ok, i installed a 2 3/4 front, 1 3/4 rear spacer lift and i'm getting some vibrations between around 25 and 35 mph. it's really not that bad and i think i could live with it, but i'm wondering if the vibes are a sign of something bad to come. it's a 01, auto, 4.0, 3.07, d30/35, on 31 bfg at's. i just don't want to tear something up.

That and it wobbles the pinion and your t-case output shaft. Best to have no vibes

Or a 1" motor mount lift and body lift at the same time. That keeps the goodies in the driveline lined up and keeps the guts tucked up for more clearance. Never did like the idea of a transfer case drop.
