Help with lift kit...
 
Hey guys I just installed a black diamond 3.5" lift on my 95. But the ignition is really stiff now and im not sure how to fix that, any ideas? Also it is making some funny rattling noises in the back end when I let off the gas....do I just need to break the lift in?

I guess you have an auto. If so you need to loosen the bolt on the shifter shaft coming off the steering column. It is under the hood. Follow it do wn to the bottom and lossen the bolt. Then re-adjust your shifter, may take 2 people. Then re-tighten the bolt. Mine did the same thing.

ok i got ya...did you have any other random noises?

it added about 5in to the jeep could that have effected the angle of the drive shaft to the differential?

explain that a little more?

You can use different shims, wedges etc..under the leaf spring to help change the angle of the driveshaft to lessen the vibs...did your kit come with these? Even if it did you might need new one's.

No it did not but that makes alot of sense. I will check in the morning and let you know...thanks

Instead of that I added a thicker washer on the spacers lowering the transfer case which seemed to cut most of that noise out.
