You can fix the bump stops with a bit of glue and big lag bolt.

I had your same problem, mine started after my 4 inch lift, I was getting grinding sort of noise when I backed off the accelerator, it only last few seconds but sounds bad and faster your going the worse the sound is.
I had both unis replaced
Rotated tail shaft
Pulled the tail shaft apart and filled spline full grease, this made the noise almost disappear but only lasted for 1 hour of driving then it was back.
I then did a high pinion rear and zero driveline noises.

If you searched through the GQ section for drive line noises you would have found few threads on this topic and there is a high pinion thread there also with all the info you need.
