    I currently have a spacer kit on my 203 and in the last year have developed leak after leak. If I remove this with a 4" lift will I be ok? Right now it drives and runs fine. But I equate the leaks to the added pressure from the tranfer case drop.

    Anyone have any experience either way?

    Dont think the leaks are a direct result of the tcase drop. You might have a crack in the case, or a gasket/seal might be broken.

    The tcase drop is to give you a better driveline angle on the rear. It usually makes the front worse though. If you need to drop it, dont use the spacers they provide. They put some major stress concentrations on the frame. Space it down with some square stock between the bolt holes.

    I have my crossmember spaced down a bit, but just temporarily until I can get a CV made.
