View Full Version : Body and Engine mount Lift
26-08-2002, 07:53 AM
I have just fitted my JKS 1.25" bb and Currie 1" mm - the mm was a pain. Everything so far seems ok except the transfer case seems to be out. I can not get 4L it seems like I need to pull the stick further back but it can't go any further back. My transfer case is still dropped from my OME 2" lift. I'm thinking once I put it back to the normal hight it should be ok. Any input will be great.

After my suspension and BL ages ago the first thing I had to do when I got home was undo the 0.5" bolt on the tcase linkage shaft, got my better 0.5 to pull the lever to 4-lo whilst I did the bolt up. Then all was cool.
Only other prob was removing the tcase lowering kit after a SYE install. The linkage closest to the tcase was fouling on the chassis. A gutload of WD40 and working it through 4-hi - 4lo a few times worked a treat. For extreme linkage problems you can get a modified linkage arm but it ain't cheap. I think Quadratec do it for about $60US.
Much cheaper to get someone handy with a welder to modify it instead...and post the DIY steps. You were looking for something to do this w/e wern't you ?!?

You need a modified bracket for the t/case lever mount. Basically a piece of plate that mounts to the existing bracket and gives you a higher mounting point for the lever (if you have a look you might find that the linkage is cocked off at an angle). You can either make it yourself or source one from one of the suspension kit manufacturers via Suburban or USA4x4.

Thanks for the input. I was provided with a plate in the kit to do that with transfer case lever mount but the installation instructions said to not to bother if doing a MM. I'll try the surgestions this weekend and tell you how I've gone.

After I did the same I lost the transfer case lowering kit. And had no troubles what-so-ever. I didn't even try with the spacers still in place.

Took out the transfer case spaces and its now as smooth as it was stock. The linkege did not need adjusting and I can now get 4L.
