    My 4" lift should finally be here next week, and i was gonna drop the t-case right away with the stock spacers. Not sure if ill need to, but im figuring that it will vibrate if i dont drop it. So my question, when you drop the T-case, do you have to extend the linkage, or do anything else? '91 jimmy, 350, 4L60E, 241. Thanks in advance!

    I didn't have to. Every rig is different though.

    I'm just full of questions, geeze. What about the sway bar? When i put on the lift, will the sway bar still be able to bolt up, or will i NEED disconnects or some other extending item...lol

    You won't have to add swaybar extensions at 4", but you will at 6".

    I got the extensions on my 6" lift because it is also driven on the street.
