I believe you need a Novak linkage set up

Jeep_guy3 03-22-2012 10:45 PM

X2 on the Novak cable shifter.

JEREMYTJ 03-23-2012 12:14 AM

Where would i go about to get one? 4 wheel parts?

I got mine from savvyoffroad.com $189 or something like that, it was worth every penny too. I have a 4" suspension and 2"BL and never could get it into 4lo. This fixed all my problems and shifts like butter.

I'll echo the recommendation...it's not cheap, but it works flawlessly.

JEREMYTJ 03-26-2012 01:36 PM

Ya i looked them up.. they are kinda expensive! Is there any cheaper ones

Jeep_guy3 03-26-2012 01:44 PM

I dont think anyone else makes something comparable. I was reluctant to spend the money at first, but now that it's installed and I have a full working tcase that shifts like butter... I'd buy another in a heart beat if I get another jeep without it.

What your asking for is a drop bracket, and they are pretty cheap or you can make one. Your absolutely better off getting an aftermarket cable linkage, novak is actually the cheaper one of the good cables, and IMO the best one. Its on my list.

I'm not sure they sell one to accommodate a 4" suspension and 3" body. You'd have to build your own. Maybe buy the largest one and add on to it.

Well heres another question, i bought the jeep with the 4 inch lift and 3 inch body right.. it did not come with a swaybar. It has the quick disconnects already so will a stock swaybar work just fine?

Kevbz 03-26-2012 03:27 PM

if the quick disconnects are the correct length for a 4" lift...yes. the body lift does not effect the sway bar since it is mounted on the frame.

JEREMYTJ 03-26-2012 03:30 PM

Thanks man for ur help

Suspension doesn't affect the linkage just the rod with the adjustment on which is easy to adjust. Sometimes it does need to be made longer but that's rare. They make drop brackets for 3 inch body lifts. And that's what he would need for a cheap fix. I still suggest the Novak though :thumb:

GoldenSahara00 03-26-2012 04:05 PM

How do you have links and no bar? Lol

I guess I should have specified, I'm assuming if the PO was ill advised enough to put a 3" BL he probably put a 1.5" Tcase drop in it like the PO did on my 4" suspension lift. In which case a bracket for a 3" BL probably wouldn't work, that's the problem I ran into anyways, that additional drop in the tcase screwed things up.

JEREMYTJ 03-27-2012 02:16 AM

Some jackass stole my sway bar! Ya i know what kinda jeeper would do that.. lol and i bought the jeep with the lifts already on it

Oh I agree with that 100% but I was going by the facts at hand. Like I said no garentee that the bracket will fix but he asked if there was a bracket of some type. I was just telling him what should have been there.
