I recently had a 4.5" RE long arm lift installed. Of course, a CV and SYE were used with it. It's a custom tri-link in the rear. 5.13 gears in D44 axles. No tranny or t-case lift was done.
But here's the problem: Ever since the moment I picked it up, I have trouble finding exactly where my 1st gear and 3rd gear is. I feel like I'm in, but not nearly as deep as I used to be (the throw is shorter). And many times, if I'm in first (or so I think) when I go to pull away from a stop light, the shifter will pop out of what I thought was first. I can also be in 3rd gear and driving, let off the throttle and then lightly back on and *poof*, I've popped out of 3rd. Clutch in, swing the shifter down to neutral, back into 3rd, problem fixed.
But this was never the case before my suspension install. I had a longer throw into the top gears (1st, 3rd, 5th) and I NEVER popped out.
I hope I've described this well enough. If you need more details, please feel free to ask.
