    well was 4wheelin the other day and got stuck, pulled out and then drove home. noticed a weird vibration/grinding/rubbing noise from the rear d-shaft.. well turns out i cracked the frame right at the t-case mounts on the pass. side, must have pushed the t-case back about 1/2" and my rear d-shaft has extended and rubbs.. what the hell can i do? i know i can weld something back on the frame, but what about the t-case?
    please help /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif

    Marve_springer has a 75 frame, just buy it and start a full scale project or, weld in a home made brace, I would fix it soon, the added stress will start to take it's toll on your drive line real soon /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif
