Definitely going to be watching this. I doubt I'll be able to join in for the whole trip. If you guys stop in Moab I'm pretty much in for that so long as I'm not deployed or anything by then.

Before tearing into the t-case, I would disconnect both driveshafts and operate the transfer case by hand. You can disconnect the linkage and shift from the case. Turn the yokes by hand in each...

That's always been an idea. I've had these springs for going on 2 years now. I think they are the heavyweight Currie springs which compound the issue.

I'd find an F-body forum and research the differences between the OBDI and OBDII LT1. They used that motor till 97 in the F-body cars and were equipped with OBDII in those later years IIRC.
