    Could a person drop the tcase 1" and still be safe? What would you consider the maximum amount a person could drop the tcase.

    Oh yeah and will 33's fit on a blazer with no lift?

    Thanks

    My t-case is dropped 1", I would say the limiting factor would be putting the engine/trans at too much of any angle if you drop it very far.

    33's fit but you wont have room for any flex.

    The 33's on a stock blazer was just a j/k.....
    I plan on going 1" too. Hope it helps with the front driveshaft angle!

    Don't forget to replace your muffler bearings when you drop the tcase. I have a set $20 plus trip /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

    yikes....is this the most hyjacked post ever or...? /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

    As far as the tcase drop, depends on the tcase... with a trick HAD shaft, you could prolly drop a divorced np205 a LOT... i think more info would help peeps answer the question better. Info like... why are you dropping it, what kinda 205, what kinda shafts u run etc

    It should help with the angle we just did a 6" lift on my budys K5 and the driveshaft CV joint was bindin' up we dropped the t-case an inch and it eliminated the binding /forums/images/graemlins/truck.gif
