Different vibration in driveline after trying everything

Hey all, I'm in a bit of a quandary.

I've had this ultra annoying vibration show up in my truck constantly around 65-75mph, i cant make it go away. If i accelerate it goes away, but as soon as I resume cruising speed, it returns.

I've been trying my damn'dest to kill this vibration.

~Replaced the carrier bearing. (I was able to watch and ensure the driveshaft went back together *Exactly* as before)
~Have had all my u joints inspected
~Religiously lube my u-joints
~Have the tires road force balanced, and aligned several times in the last couple months (3 different shops too)
~Had my wheel bearings checked out and the rear 2 replaced
~Had my axle seals checked out (1 needed replacing)
~checked out tranny and diff fluids


Now heres where it gets fucking wierd.

I decided as one of my few last ditch efforts, was to install a carrier bearing drop bracket (i had a 3 inch lift installed, and diff drop done) (vibration was there before the lift)

So i bought a Carrier Bearing drop bracket from Brian at Street Tacos.

It worked. It reduced the vibrations, but the problem was it made it over a larger MPH spectrum, and I had the dreaded launch shudder.

So i took it off:








Now what? I took off the bracket (only had it on for 3 days), and the launch shudder is gone, but the vibe is still there.

It looks like you got the wrong CB drop bracket.

He makes one < 4" of lift:


And another for 5+" of lift:


The one shown on your truck definitely looks like the larger one.

Brian's a good good guy to work with. I have his smaller CB drop bracket and it fixed my driveline shutter issues even with the long travel rear suspension.
I'm sure he'll fix the situation for you.
