  • Transfer Case Lowering Kit

    Ok, Hopefully this will reach the same old experts I have relied on for so long. But anyone with help would be appreciated.
    I am looking at some different suspension lifts for my CJ5, and am decided what height and what brand,...yahdy yahdy yah. What is a transfer case lowering kit (other than the obvious) and how does it work. If you have a picture of one installed that would be great too.

    It is a set of spacers that go between the t-case skid, and the frame. It changes the pinion angle(sort of). It is used when you have steep driveshaft angles and need to relax them a bit. I don't have a pic right now of the one on my YJ(it is basically the same) but when I have one I will post it. The good part, it can cure some drive shaft vibes. The bad part, it can cost some ground clearance.

      Mine is spaced down 5/8". Easy to make if you have a cut off saw and drill press. As said above the spacers go between the frame and skid plate with the bolts (3 on each side) through the hole 1"x1"squares with a hole in the middle will work. DP

          Ok, that makes alot more sense now. So how much lift do you have? At what point does it help, or at what point is it needed? I am looking at 2.5-3 in suspension lift, probably close to 1/2 in from the new shackles, and a 1 in body lift.

          Thanks for the quick replies and the pics.

            I have the same lift as you are talking about 3" and 1" body lift. The spacers are 5/8 no problems with u joints and no vibration. DP

              i also have a 4"SL with a 1"BL. no problems. you can also use cv's if you don't want the tcase drop.

                I didn't have one on the Cj when I got it. So just used 2 pieces of super strut
                which gave about the same drop as the kit and very strong
