    Heyo guys, I have 4" angle blocks on the rear axle which I am thinkin is causin a pretty nasty vibration @ 55 and above. Is there a way to drop the t-case to at least get the angles close? I looked and as near as I can tell the t-case sets on a rubber mount and the whole kit and kaboodle is bolted to a cross member that of course in turn bolts to the frame. Please tell me if there is a quick and dirty way instead of payin the moolah for new blocks as we are movin and money is really tight. Thanks is advance!!

    He's got the crossmember that wraps up the driver side of the frame and has two bolts near the top. I have never tried dropping that t case/crossmember but I can see you dilema. I would be tempted to cut that part of the crossmember off completely. Not saying that is what you should do. First drill new holes I guess. What are you angle measurements???
