You cannot tell the condition of a VC not installed on the vehicle.

I donít have an answer to this question. But to the english speakers on the forum, Iím assuming he wants to know if you can check to see if a VC is good or not with the transfercase removed from the vehicle.

terpsmandan And no leaks out of a used transfer case that had been sitting for 10 years. Also ironic that I looked around FB and CL and now that I am done, I cannot find a used T-case, and I had the 231 that I swapped in was delivered to me at work for $100... Sometimes Karma is is good.....

kg6mov All ZJ/XJ/MJ/YJ/TJ front shaft u-joints are the same 1310's.

That sounds like it'd be about the right length if you're measuring correctly.

Edit: I found a drive shaft on ebay I think will work. It is for an XJ and measures
Extended Length: 33 inch
Over Compressed Length: 30.7 inch

Do you guys think this will work?
It should, but before purchase, I would verify that your Dana 30 has the same size yoke as the Dana 30 in a 93. Also I would be curious to see why the AW4 is the only compatible transmission.

terpsmandan And it's done. It goes all the way into 4lo. Still have to swap the plugs in the VIC and it's a little stiff coming out of 4lo but it all works. This is a great thread.

I need to proofread.... I was concerned about getting the part that attaches to the shift lever. Probably not bad once you get the OEM linkage out of the way.
