A transfer case drop is the equivalent of a dual steering stabilizer.

What do you guys think. I have 4.5 inch long arm lift with a Jks track bar and slight bump steer. I have an rc track bar drop bracket and drop pitman in my garage. Should I install them and weld the bracket in? Sorry for the slight hijack

Well u think I (lost) the original bolts for the TC, so I guess I'm going to the dealership to replace those if I remove it. I'm just not sure how 6.5 inch springs will affect the geometry of everything.

like having a drop pitman with a adjustable Trackbar!

Better spray them IRO bolts with some Paint or they'll be corroded and rusty in no time. same thing if you bought the adjustable long arms

Managed to get the brackets semi mounted today. I still have to drill the holes and install the front bolts and nut plates but I'm kinda fighting a hangover from lastnight and it's a little toasty here today.

Indeed I will. I'm going get the holes drilled for the nut plates and get everything on and drive it around and see about vibes then put it back to stock. I gotta get the stock bolts again from the dealer.

Do it already. Really. If you get driveline vibrations from the front or rear or a combination of the two, properly fix it by adjusting the respective pinion angles. What the hell is the point of lifting your 6" only to have the ground clearance at the midsection of your WJ of that of a 4" lift?

Ok. A little update since I had a little time today to Putz around with the jeep. I finally removed the transfer case drop and put everything back to stock, like everyone has been telling me to. I also fished in the new bracket nut plates. Baby steps.

How did removing the TC drop effect the ride?

I'm starting to think my parents didn't buy me enough tonka trucks as a kid.

. Well now I think my vibes went from front to back. At least that what it feels like. Upon deceleration at about 45 to 35ish in the rear. I guess my next step is a slip yolk eliminator. Never ends. I love it.

Are you using stock drive shafts?
