Removing transfer case drop kit

I had cv/sye installed a few months back so I don't think I need the case drop anymore...

Need some advise. is there anything else that will need to be done besides removing those spacers between the case and frame?

Would it effect my drive-shaft in a negative way? It was installed at the local 4 wheel parts.

You'll need to adjust the pinion angle properly. A fixed yoke and double cardan drive shaft are useless without proper pinion angle.

Guess I'll just leave it in for now I have no type of experience doing the pinion stuff and 4wheel wheel charge insane labor to do it for me

Then learn and do it.....

It's a piece of cake and doesn't require genius-level critical thinking.

The pinion angle needs to be set. Don't just leave it at whatever random angle it happens to be at right now. Whether you do the job yourself or have a shop do it you'll need to get adjustable upper control arms if you don't already have them.

Check out this thread - it will show ya what's going on with your current setup:
