ok so the tc drop is on its way and im getting the seal the outer seal for the rear driveshaft, where it meets the transfer case, tomorrow. and i got the automatic transmission fluid my manual recommended, did i get the right stuff? its the castrol dex/merc, domestic multi-vehicle automatic transmission fluid engineered to extend tranny life. for older ford and domestic general motors vehicles

im going to install the tc drop, replace the seal and then top off the fluid.
is that the right order?

and im not really wat to do when it comes to removing the driveshaft, replacing the seal and putting the driveshaft back. are there torque specs to be met?

Seal, fluid, then drop.

I used atf +4 in my tcase. I don't know about torque settings either. Sorry.

The seal is probably leaking because the bearing in the tail cone is worn.

Your limited slip differential sucks.

got the seal, bushing, tcase drop and steering stabilizer installed. also topped off the transfer case fluid. when i shift into 2nd and 4th gear my stick shifts all the way but hits the console when it is fully in. would a new console solve this(i really dont want to spend money on that)

Pull shifter out, Place in vice, Apply heat from torch, Bend a little just below the area where it is contacting, replace, repeat if necessary.

Or just leave it in and apply heat and bend it where you like it.

Looked at your images again...not sure, but it almost looks like there were axle shims installed with the new springs? The rear diff looks like it is pointed directly at the t-case.
Can you either clarify if you installed shims with the springs, or post up a better picture of the point where the springs sit under the axle?

i used a stack of washers ,sprayed them black and called it good, its cheap and it keeps a nice opening between the frame and the skid plate so you can put a hose in there and clean it all out after muding.

the vibration is 90% gone so im not worried about that anymore. im going to take my track bars off because they dont let my springs articulate at all. do i just unbolt them? is there anything else to taking them off?

Just unbolt em.
May need to soak them in some penetrant if they are rusted up.
