Troubles with my 4" RC lift, help!

I have a 2000 sport model with a 5 speed. Just finished installing my 4" RC kit. No problems on the front or rear. Put in the t-case spacers to drop it down until I get the money for a SYE and new driveline, no problems there.

I came to installing the extension bracket for the shift linkage. With the T-case dropped the linkage was at a pretty extreme angle and I could not get it to drop.

Question: Is there a special way to get it to drop from the stock bracket? or do I need to lift the t-case back up to remove tension, remove it and then put the spacers back in before installing the bracket?

It was getting to be a late night so we tightened it back down and called it good for now. It is my daily driver so I am driving it at a minimal and just keeping her in 2 wheel until she is fixed.

Thanks all!

My RC kit came with a "drop bracket" for the 4wd lever. In the pic, you can see the hardware in the 2nd row of holes, so I dropped it down to the last set of holes as seen in the 2nd pic.

My old rc kit came with the drop down bracket and then it needs to adjusted so you can use 4wL. I swith to a bracket kit from skyjacker and it works much better

my bracket that came with the kit is much like the one pictured, but I cannot get the stock bracket off of the body. This bracket in my kit is made to attach to the body and extend the original mounts for the newly positioned t-case. I got the two bolts around the shaft off, i just can"t go anywhere from there. I will take a picture this weekend if I am still not clear, its tough to explain!

Thanks guys!

I didn't like how the shifter worked after I installed those parts it kept popping out of 4lo even after I adjusted it.and when the body flexed the dam thing came apart so I got one from quadratec and it works great.
