Default Drivetrain

New to this site so need some answers. I have a recently purchased 98 TJ Sahara. Such good shape just had to get it. It has a probably 2 to 3-inch lift and there was a lot of drive shaft vibration. I have replaced all of the universals. put new shocks and sway bar unit and still has some vibration. Not bad but still there. So put a drop on the skid plate and still have some. What is the fix for this? As of now, it has managed to destroy the rear tranny seal, leaking fluid pretty bad, auto. Do not like the skid plate lowered, puts the engine too close to the firewall. Last resort is the kit to shorten the tranny output shaft and new drive shaft etc. Costly to do so the first real question is

1 Can you use the springs that are there is the front if I was to lower back to stock height, they look new.
2 Will the new shocks stay also
Not a drastic lift, has rubber spacers etc. You fellas know what I am talking about. All the parts are new and just do not want to hit the bank for shorter ones if I do lower. To do the adaptor case is nice with the new driveshaft but here again, costly.

Ok enough for now. Let me know what the preferred route to take here. I do not get off-road. A horror story to some jeepsters I know. Just like the vehicle a lot but want to have a smooth ride. gphil
