It's very possible to not have enough angle on the bracket with a flat skid. You may need to cut and relocate the bracket on the axle tube or get a rear track bar with heim joints.

If it's just an angle problem, raise or lower the axle (coils out, CA's still attached), that movement will rotate the pinion angle some, maybe enough to get it in there.

Any luck yet? One good idea from previous post is to remove your coils and hook it back up and reinstall your coils.

Hey thanks for the ratchet strap idea. I got the track bar on easy with that method and everything seems to be out if harms way. Now the control arms and pinion angle. Are a different story. I need to go a bit steeper but my control arms do not have the length to go more. They are advertised for 4-6 in lifts I have a 4. I believe when I rotate the pinion the axle despite being in the air moves farther towards the rear. Trued the ratchet strap again but it snapped and flung the hook right over my head haha. The middle pic is of the track bar bracket that the top tab is not flush with the axle bracket

Today i drove the heep for the first time in 3 months ugh that was brutal feeling like i could never get enough time to get this project finished. Now its not finished lol but i had it in gear and that was amazing. Got it up to 50!!
I will need to get some pics when its bright out which might be a few days but here is what i did.
1" BD mml
flat belly skid - still needs to be countersunk
New stocker transfer case mount
jb ss sye
currie adj rear uppers (greased)
RE adj lowers (found local) (greased)
RE angled rear track bar (Still needs top hole drilled and Bolt tightened)
Novak shifter cable.
TW double cardian with extra clearencing 22 degree angle 22" long were the measurements i ordered with. cycled suspension and didn't have any binding.
New tranny and tcase fluid with tranny filter.

Things i need to do.
Lengthen front ds
replace rear shocks, dumbass forgot to remove them while adjusting pinion angle.
relocate shock mount (? on this)
Where can i get a good mount to do this and or can i reuse the stock one just cut it off and re angle it? And when i do get new shocks is it okay to put the tube side on top and have the moving part on the bottom i remembered reading that some of them it doesn't matter the orientation.
Also did doing a tt change the the feel much or should i just replace these shocks before looking into other things. then look at the ds angle and the track bar and the ca's. How much will a drive train move because it is real close to the tub and might be causing slight vibrations.
Anyways thanks so much for everyone's help couldn't have done it without you all

Just finished installing a Barnes 3" t-case skid plate and a Rokman engine/trans skid and the results came out great. I wanted a bolt on, wasn't interested in changing trans mounts or dimpling the body to make something fit and I sincerely doubt 1" of clearence is going to effect my ability to get up and over obstacles. I might have been able to use the 2" drop skid plate, but I wanted something strong and as smooth as possible. The Barnes does not come with the trans mount holes predrilled to I took it to a machinist, along with the stock plate and they did a great job slotting the new skid. So the only work I had to do was drill two 3/8" holes to allow the Rokeman to bolt to the barnes. Both are well made and I sincerely doubt I'll run into any real issues when wheeling.
