    I'm gonna be dropping my transfer case and tranny tomorrow morning and need to know how to pop the drive shafts off the transfer case. It's a np208.

    Also, can anyone tell me if it's synchronized or non-synchronized? I know we'll know once we open it up, but it'd be nice to know beforehand.

    I dont have a 208 but I am pretty sure the following info is good.

    With a 208 the rear drive shaft is connected to the transfer case via a slip yoke. This means once you disconnect the drive shaft from the rear axle just pull the drive shaft and slip yoke out of the transfer case, it should just come right out.

    synchronized or non-synchronized? I dont know what you are referring to!

    Hope this helps a little, /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Are you asking if the shafts need to be reinstalled in the sam pos they cam out? That answer is no. As far as the case being synchronized, High range is-ie, shift on the fly, Low range is not, and since there is no clutch that's why you need to be stopped, or be some kind of incrediable gear shifter to engage the low range planetaries.

    Just a side note, when you drop a rear driveshaft, make sure you remember the vehicle can roll unless you have taken precautions or are on flat ground.

    Also, be prepared to catch the oil coming out when the shaft is removed.
