    I just went outside and looked underneath to see if I had those spacing things on the crossmember like Daweson444 had on his. Well, I do, and well, they are between the frame and crossmember already. They are where everyone has told me to put them. You guys said to put them between the frame and crossmember right? Are they normal between the bolt and crossmember like Dawson444's pic? Let me know.

    This is how I understand it:

    The engine-tranny-t-case is held upp by the rubber feet that are the engine mounts, and then the end of the drivetrain line "rest's" on the crossmember that goes under the t-case. If you lower that crossmember it tilts everything down. The rubber feet will just twist a litle which is "OK"
    They do it on the new big trucks all the time if there is vibration. It's just a simple angle adjustment.

    To see Dawson444's pics, go to "search" then put in the keywords like "t-case" and it will pop up. Ok, well it's already been lowered. I just wanted to make sure that I was looking at the darn thing right. On my '87 Jimmy that got stolen over the summer, I didn't drop the t-case eventhough I had a 6" lift. I did get the driveshafts lengthened, but that's all. Worked just fine. No vibrations or u-joint wear and tear. Thanks.
