Are you installing a slip yoke eliminator or something like that? Or are you having vibrations?

Basically, it'll line up the engine with the radiator if you've installed a body lift. In some cases, it'll point the rear output on the transfer case slightly more towards the rear axle.

First off, a body lift has nothing to do with your driveline. It raises your "BODY". If you raise the motor mounts it can change the geometry.

I changed my rear driveline after I did my 4" suspension lift because I did not want to drop my belly plate two inches. (It did not make much sence to loose two inches of clearance)
I installed a Tom Wood's SYE and CV drive line. I also added a 1" body lift and raised my radiator 1". (Not my engine) I am still running the stock front drive line. I did not raise the engine because I like the extra room between the engine and hood for air lines and etc...
