Bump for some pics of 3" leveling kit. I was leaning toward 2.5 front only, but if the 3 will work, I'd do 3" in front, .75" in rear.

Im supposably running a 3" but it really only lifted it 2.5 (cheap ebay leveling kit but did the job and rides great) added a 3" pa body and got the 5" pa lift basically for alittle cheaper
I do have the vibration in 4wd tho but I never use it other than that one time I did it just to see if it did in fact vibrate

So did you do the 5" pa lift (3" body lift +2" spacers) or did you do a 3" body lift with your own spacers.
I wouldn't just push the vibration to the side, you axles and transfer case still spin as you drive so it will cause front end problems eventually
Something else that hasn't been mentioned is when you lift that much like that it also leaves your ball joints on extreme angles and will wear them out much quicker
