Am I going to be in trouble?

So, I took it upon myself to change all fluids. To do the tranny and tcase, I took the tcase skid plate off. For one, I can't remember nor can I really find any info/pics on the internet on whether the spacers in there were between the skid plate and frame. I am assuming they do, in order to allow the tranny/tcase/rear part of engine to lower slightly because of the lift on the rig. For one, is my synopis on the right path? Secondly, I did not measure the angle of the rear driveshaft from the tranny to the rear diff before the fluid change. I remounted the skid plate, and wondering if the remount alone should return the correct angle that was in place before?

Any advice is appreciated. I would rather get some reassurance from anyone here before I test drive.

Thanks much

I have no idea to be honest. Is the tcase drop just the spacers or is there maybe something on the housing? How would I figure that out? I bought this thing about 2 months ago and spend all my free time (much to the dismay of my wife) reading this forum and others to load up on info on how-to's and what not...

The spacers just go between the skid and frame. Then install the bolts. Nothing more to it.

Also...your profile picture show a decent shot of them. And you have a 4'' suspension lift, profile say...body lift.

Ha...ya, its def a suspension lift. Thanks to you both...I figured that remounting the plate would return to the angle to whatever it was before. I looked at the pic I had before but I wasn't 100% sure. I was concerned only because after muddin last weekend I was having a pretty hard vibration when letting off the gas in 4th gear going about 55mph or so. It was alot harder than the normal vibration as the engine slows...thanks again
