    Lever shift or push button?

    The IFS board here is slow, but the garage gets most IFS quesitons answered. Haven't found a better site.......shoot, im almost at 1000 posts, and i don't hang in the lounge, or have an SFA truck.

    Yep, but may take a little bit of time. Up to a couple min if its cold. If it never lights up, either you got a burnt out indicator light, or need a new front actuator.

    look for a 1 or 2 peice sub frame drop kit thay are stronger. and if you dont like the slow thermal or electric actuator then get a posi - lock kit.

    Was 97 a thermal? It was either 97 or 98 they went electronic....but yes, a posi lock is more reliable than either.

    i'll agree with the gas station, but a diesel of the same vintage wont hold a candle to it.
