    I have an 89 Blazer that comes out of 4HI. 3 1/2 rancho lift (I think) with the groovy transfer drop installed!
    Do I need cut floor board or what? I did a search but I could find anything /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif Thanks.

    I got 6in and 3in and when I did mine there is linkage between the transfer case and the shifter I had to adjust that cause I had some problems with it popping out now its alright.

    Pull the shifter boot loose and see how close the shifter is to the body opening when it's in 4HI. If it's really close, then when the engine torques the driveline, the shifter will hit the body and get knocked back into 2HI. /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif It's an easy fix to just to a bit of a trim on the opening. /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif

    Didja explain to her how important it is that you fix that annoying "pops out of 4WD" problem, since we're having so much snow? (How's THAT for getting the thread back on track?) /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    BTW, I re-read your original post. For some reason, I thought we were talking about your 'burb. /forums/images/graemlins/blush.gif Your '89 Blazer should have a solid linkage from the shifter to the t-case. But GM thought it was a good idea to mount the shifter solidly to the body, while the t-case is bolted to the frame. So when you lowered the t-case, you changed the distance between them. /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif The linkage probably needs to be readjusted (or lengthened) to account for the drop.

    nothing but the truth there brother.
    funny thing is, dont buy a brand new house.... unless you have it built and designed to your wants and needs.

    i have put more money into the da@n thing making it so it doesnt look like everybody else in the subdivision. not counting replace all the lights and other inside stuff.

    but it is nice and it is fun.
