Transfer Case

Hey, does anybody have a clue on how to lower a transfer case on an 89 Wrangler, 258 6cyl. It came with the Rubicon 4" Lift,.

Thanks Shawn

get a floor jack and also block of wood to help support the x-case skid plate and loosen the 6 bolts (3 bolts on either side just so there loose and not all the way out on one side take out the bolts and put the spacer(s) and then just barely tighten them do the same thing on the other and then when you have both of the spacers on either side tighten all the bolts up and your done hopes helps

You'll have to use a reverse torx socket for the bolts that go into the frame rail. Go easy on removing them. Soak them with some penetrating oil first and you may have to use a long pipe on a breaker bar to break the bolts loose. Also, make sure to check the clearance on your shift levers when you do lower the T-case. When I lowered my 89' yj T-Case 2" the shift lever would hit the metal band around the shift boot when in reverse. This didn't allow reverse gear to fully engage. After about 1 month of driving it this way, I was pulling the tranny to put in a new reverse gear.

The degree shims go between the rear axle and the u-bolt mounting plates. The shim should be placed over the spring centerbolt head, with the thick end forward. The idea is to have the axle rotate up toward the t-case a few degrees to help on driveline angles.
