do i need to drop tran/transfer case
i have a 79 cj7 and i plan on putting a 4in rough country lift kit on it. do i need to drop the tran? is there anything else i need to do for this lift to work. thanks
On most 4" lifts you will want to lower the cross member. It all comes down to driveline angles really.
My build thread
1979 CJ7, FI 5.0L Ford, NP435, D300, Full floated D44 Detroit, D30 Detroit EZ Locker.
My 4" RC lift came with a TC drop. I took it out when I installed an SYE and CV driveshaft.
- 2003 Rubicon - 4" Lift, 35" KM2s, 5.13 gears, winch
- 1968 CJ5 - Dauntless V6, T-86, Dana 18, D27 & D44
- NRA Life Member - Licensed to Carry and Do.
Look into what Jeepmaster said. Lots of times you will end up spending more money on one of those budget kits in order to get the other stuff you need. In the long run, buying a nicer lift kit for a little more gets you all the stuff you need in one package and gives you a better ride with better quality springs that aren't going to sag down to a 2.5" lift after a year. Save yourself some headaches too and go with a double cardan/CV style rear driveshaft after the lift and leave out the TC drop. Price out Tom Woods or Tatton's shafts, they are about the same. It will save you a lot of U joint woes.
Cool as Ice...
