vibration on accel. when in 4WD

i just started getting a real nasty noise in the front end on accel. when in 4WD. ive checked the drive shaft u joint and cv joints. cant seem to find anything loose. and im wondering if it is because of the 3 inch torsion key lift in the front. any info would be great.

thanks

Your CVs are probably binding. If you do any searching on this site you will see that torsion key lifts are crap.
