3" Body Lift Cut - 4WD Problems
Bought my Jeep with a 3" BL on it and finally got my 4" Suspension Lift in so cut 3" BL in half yesterday in hopes of putting in the 4" lift in a few weeks. All went well except when I tested 4WD it went into 4HI like butter but when I tried for 4LO it was stiff. I decided to just go back to 2WD and modify the bracket installed with the 3" BL rather than forcing it but it got stuck in 4HI even in the 2WD position.
So, now I am not sure exactly the angle I should have from the bracket to the 4WD link/shifter. The bracket hangs pretty low right now and it is angled up from the bracket to the body. Should it be flat? I don't want to honeycomb this bracket trying to find the sweet spot for shifting my 4WD. And just a note, when the 3" BL was on I could shift to and run in 4LO but it would pull out of it going up hill climbs so I don't think the bracket install was perfect to begin with.
Thanks for any advice...
