When adding a suspension lift, the driveline is moved down further away from the transfer case thereby altering the driveshaft angle. As many of you know this causes all sorts of side effects. Anything from rattling a little bit, to downright knockin your teeth out. I had a similar problem with my 3.5" lift. On the decelleration my shaft (uh...he he) would vibrate to the point of people in the car were looking at me like "Whats that?"
To fix it I first tried axle shims....made it worse!
Then I called the ever-reliable Supplee Supergod and he sent me a Tera-Flex T-case drop kit. There was much rejoicing.........
There really wasn't much to the kit. Here is one side of it...

Its just some spacers and a few bolts with lock washers...
First thing I did was place the jack right under the center of the Tcase crossmember.

Next take the stock bolts out and some models you may have to keep them, some you don't, and some are studded(which is a pain in the butt...)
Mine were studded so I had to once again weld the nutt to the stud and back er' out slow......
Lower the jack about 1-1.5" down just enough to get the big silver spacers in there.

Then try your best to line it all back up and set the four bolts first before tightening it all the way up. Remember if you let the jack down you've got the weight of the entire tranny,tcase and the back half of the engine. Don't force something that doesn't want to go and make sure your bolt marks are sort of where the factory bolts were. You can tell by the scratching they leave.
Once its all done and once you call her Betty then Betty you call me Al.....
It should look like this

Good stuff Corey! That looks like a 2" drop?

As an addendum, on a TJ the finished product (1" drop) will look a little sumpthin like this...
