Transfer Case Lowering help and advice

hey fellow jeepers...I have an issue with the t-case bolts while trying to put on the lowering kit. what I did was hit the bolts with pb blaster for a week straight and then tried to loosen them and finally broke the rust but I looked closer with a flashlight and it looks like the bolt was so rusted that it broke any of the thread in which the bolt goes into to hold up the tranny skid plate. has anyone ever run into this problem before? if so, should I drill new holes into the frame for the new bolts?

To do it correctly from what I've seen (mine came right out no problems) is to cut a hole in the frame and re weld a new nutsert in then patch the frame.

No need to cut holes.

You can find the kit with the nutserts on page 31.

question though...how do the nutserts stay inside the frame? do they have to be welded in there?

nutserts are for no-weld installations in a boxed access application.

I was also thinking about this with the lowering kit...wouldn't that change the angle of the engine a little bit and cause the fan to lean or tilt forward towards the engine and possibly cut or shrewd into he belts?

yes a little but there is some wiggle room. I did a 1" body lift and only had to trim a sliver off the bottom of the shroud to clear. You can also raise/lower the whole radiator with brackets bought or homemade.
Dont let it stop you though
