Ok what I need to know is what do I need to do to the drive line to make my 6 in lift kit work
lower your t-case most of them have some spacers on the crossmember put them inbetween the crossmember and fram rail that will lower it about 1inch. mine did not have any so i cut some 1inch ones myself.
ok so im sortof new to the chevy world. no if i move my x-case doesnt that mean i move my tranny to im confused a little
no, you can lower your t-case about a inch and not hurt anything get under there and you will see what im talking about.
does this sound like a good idea im takeing my 86 chevy that i blew up yesterday and putting all the lift stuff in it and taking my new 37-14.50x15 in toyo tires and wheels and putting them all on this other truck that i got for 500 dollars the truck only has 43000 miles total on it. and its a 79 its got a 205 x-case with i think a 700r4. but not sure bout that.
ok Ill try that in the morning. i worked the weekend shift it sucks.
what is the shap of the pan on the tranny? the swap should work, worst i hate is the old rusted bolts. good luck
well the shape is square and big from what my buddie told me is that its probly a heavy 1/2 ton and it could very well have a 400 also who knows. Oh yeah on the old rusty bolts they arnt rusted its been in Nevada all its life and has never seen water from what i was told. and in any case im gonna wd 40 the crap out of them for bout 2 days.
tranny perfectly square i it is a 700r4. did u see the little spacers i was talking about?
yeah actually i think i know what you are talking about. with the spacers. well will all the suspension just go right in?
it should all fall into place . i helped a buddy do the same swap a few years ago it was'nt to bad.
allright then thatnks for the info and thanks for the help now all i need to do is start to take it all apart and put it together again. Im gonna try to get a membership and then I can post pics of My new rig thanks
no problem ,sounds good , good luck with it.
one more question? Do you think I should go with using the stock setup or should i go with my edelbrock carb and my weiend intake and headers. so on so forth
id go with edelbrock and weiend intake and headers
