Urgent Lift Help Needed!!!!!!!!!!!!
Posted 16 June 2004 - 02:11 AM
My query is this: The round blocks, of which there are six that hold the tranny crossmember and two that hold the body brace, as well as the two pieces that hold the rear driveshaft carrier bearing, are two inches tall, whereas all the rest of the blocks are three inches tall. Is this right? I mean, this is a three inch lift, so doesn't everything go down three inches? My confusion is compounded by the fact that on the four outer tranny crossmember connection points, the bolts were a wee bit too long and I had to grind them down to fit right. Further, with the tranny and the attached bits of suspension an inch off from where the engine and its bits of suspension are, it looks exceedingly difficult to put the strut back in place.
Somebody please tell me what's going on here?

WOOHOOO! I can hardly contain myself! It should be done late tomorrow or early thursday, just in time to drive to Whitehorse for 27" BFG A/T's and alignment.
I think I'm gonna go to bed now, since I have to get up to go to work in four and a half hours.

Yep. The shorter blocks are correct. Same goes on the 4/3 kits. There is negligable driveline angle change (1" over a few feet is nothing - but it makes for much nicer shift linkage.)
Rarely are there differences in Subes, maybe a washer or rubber here or there.... might explain about the four bolts being long, sorry.
Glad it got there properly and went together well for you. Post a pic when you get the tires on, eh?

Glad to hear you got it all slapped together! You will be grinning for weeks once those BFG ATs are on!
Get it DIRTY!
