    Nothing to it. Do one side at a time. Pull the 2 bolts out, and put the spacer piece of tubing between the frame and crossmember when you do it. Now the tubing is located on the topside of the frame. Guess GM provided it to us for just this purpose. Luck to ya.

    SO it is only the cross member that you lower? And nothing on the Tcase itself?

    I would CUZ GoKarterGo (Dan) learned the hard way. His slip yoke broke on him a few weeks ago. His got week before he droped the Tcase on his 4 inch lift. blamOOOO luckly he got to a safe location. With out breaking the entire rear shaft.Something like $150.00 and a new slip yoke. No worrys about your question here.

    convert it to a fixed yoke then your problem is solved...or just pull thos spacers and put them on the bottom side...its a very easy job to do...maybe 45 mins tops

    I lowered my trans case and now my motor is on an angle. This is ok when I had a body lift on... but with it off now I almost hit the fire wall... hopefully at flex the cab doesnt hit the distributor!!!! but hell with 14" leafs I dont think there is going to be much flex...

    I did mine with my 4" shackle flip cause my driveshaft angle was too severe. Wish I didn't have to do it, but it didn't hinder me too much this past weekend. :)

    Right ON... Doing it tonight. I'm itchen to do it now that I know its so easy. Good to hear that it wasn't a problem. I have probably gained 1.5-2 inches of lift with these add a leafs. New shocks are in store. I'm lucky enought to have Such A GOOD Bud GoKarterGo who hoocked it up with a used set of RS5000s. So two 4" lift shocks are going in the back.
