    I searched forever for this with out an luck
    I'm going to be lowering my transfer case 3/4" maybe more after having vibrations from a 4 " lift 5 1/2" blocks in the back I really dont want to but My t-case angle is too severe I was wonder if I will have to adjust my transmission linkage or t-case linkage if I only drop it a little bit.

    Tranny linkage is easy to adjust: put lever in park, loosen bolt, make sure tranny is in park, tighten bolt.

    T-case linkage does not go to the body on older trucks -- what year/flavour is yours? -- so it may or not may be an issue.

    Karnak The Invincible sees a shackle flip in your future. :haha:

    yes I want to ditch the huge freaking blocks, what do you recommend getting a shackle flip or new springs ?

    shackle flip, the angle will get better on you pinion most likely, with your 241 you may have to make a linkage adjustment

    As Resurrected_Jimmy says, the shackle flip will get you a better rear pinion angle. It also retains the stock springs, which are likely flexier than lift springs.

    Your newfangled truck has that floor shifter thing, so yeah, you'll hafta tweak something. Donno what, as my only 81+ truck is bone stock :haha:
