at about 50mph I get a vibration I think its the driveshaft, I have a 1350 cv rear shaft, the pinion does not point straight at it so I think thats the problem, how do I figure out what degree shim to install, I also have a zero rate block, I know you can buy them that are already tapered, does anyone have this set up so I can just get the same block instead of guessing?

I was told you use an angle finder to check that. Diveshaft guy say you must shim it to within 3 degrees of the driveshaft. If it is slightly down it is better , remember axles moves pinion up on accelleration. Your profile says 6 inch lift. Is it springs and blocks with zero rate or something else. My four inch shackle flip put my 12 bolt perfect. When it is shimmed proper after finding angle it should look like this:

The pinion angle doesnt have to point straight at the t-case. The two angles where the ds goes to the t-case and where the ds goes to the rearend have to be within 2* of each other. I had to drop my t-case 2 inches and use 2* shims.
