Transfer case spacers

On the my Jeep I just recenlty bought the guy had put alot of extras on it. He had the slip shaft removed and installed the heavy duty cv drive shaft and the kit on the tran.

I was reading throught the information on the stuff and it was saying the spacers werent needed with this new shaft was installed. I climbed under and was looking and there is little to no angle on the rear shaft. But I was looking at the front shaft and it was looking like it might have clearance issuse.

I was going to take the spacers out and see what I came up with since the spacers seems rather large like 1" spacers. I was just curious if anyone has run into front shaft clearance problems?

It has a 4 inch superlift on it btw.

I wouldn't think you should need any kind of spacer for a 4 inch lift... You might try taking it out and checking to see how close it is that way?!?

Yeah I was going to take them out this weekend if I get time to with mothers day and all. I figured he had the drive shaft done after the lift was installed. So the shop who put the lift on put the spacers in and they were just never taken out.

That'd be my guess. Or whoever did the work previously just didn't know what it was or something. Maybe not a Jeep only kind person/place. It's easy to take out though and you'll know right away if it's gonna be too close or anything.
