just wondering why people lower there
Thanks for any info
Some people experience a bad vibration or binding up on their driveshaft due to the angles it operates at. While a CV joint would be the optimum answer, not everyone had $600 to drop on a new driveshaft. So first we try rotating the spring pads or using shims. If that doensn't cure it, we drop the Tcase. I dropped mine an inch and it doesn't seem to hinder me. Sure cured that rear vibration though. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif
how exactly do you drop the transfer case? is there a kit to buy? /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif
10-4 on that but check your linkage after you get it done.
last week I lowered mine 1 1/4 shifter felt a little funny going into park so I put it in park hit the e-brake and crawled under to take a peak. (in the driveway mind you; 4 degree slope) so I am playing with the linkage gave it a little twist right at the tranny pow poped in "R" lucky I was vertical underneath. I had one arm on the cross member and one on the linkage sliding down the driveway like I was in some B rated action flick! /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif after about six feet I thought I better turn this somebitch b4 I get to the street thank god I got it back in park. hey one good thing, I did not have to wipe my butt the driveway did it for me. guess I will tell the old lady the truck had a oil leak. /forums/images/graemlins/ignore.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
i know what tightwork went through , but i did it differently in the end. i was putting a body lift
on my s15 and my driveway has a big slant to it. well
anyways, i have a gravel driveway,and my wheel chocks
didnt hold as good , so when i was adjusting the linkage
"pop", she started to take off downhill. i rolled out from
underneath risking being ran over , jumped in the truck
as it was rolling downhill , and slammed the brake.
/forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif. i know better now.
To lower it, just take the spacers that are on the bottom of the crossmember and place them above. Takes you about 10 mins. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
