T Case Lowering

I think that the guy that owned my truck before me lowered the Tcase.

My crossmember (under the tcase/tranny) is bolted to the bottom of the frame rails instead of to the top of them. The crossmember is right side up, but the part that should be touching the frame rail is hanging from the bottom and the top is bolted to the frame rail. I suppose that if anything it is lowered too much. It has to be like a 2" difference. Has anyone ever seen this before? Is it an ok way to adjust driveline angles?

Also, I have some problems getting the tcase to shift sometimes.

I have rubbed the crossmember a few times but other than that I have had no problems with it. The burban is only lifted 4". It doesn't seem like it needs to be lowered.
