Problem with front end
I have a 05 WK 4.7 with RK 3.5" lift. I have had the rear end replaced with a Jasper axle, the 3 front differental mounts replaced due to wear, and all tires balanced and aligned. However, the last time I went out mudding the WK started vibrating. It feels like it is all in the front end. One shop said it's the drive shaft right by the exhaust, but an off-road shop said it's my front drive shaft. Has anyone else had the same issue or know how to fix this?

Was it after you went mudding? What speeds? I'm thinking mud build up on a shaft.

Re: Problem with front end
It was after mudding. And I do have some mud still built up but most of it has been washed off from the underbody. The shop said the drive shaft is done for. But I could change it out and go to a yolk and u-joint setup. Just trying to figure out if that has been done before and if it will cause issues
