YJ Motor Mount Help

Looking for suggestions to correct the poor motor mount angle created by a new 4" lift in a 93 YJ 4.0L.

I know a couple manufacturers have +1" kits, but I would like to avoid putting a body lift on to accomodate these.

Also, anybody have any good shackle reversal suggestions?

Thanks in advance for the help.

How did a 4" lift change your motor mount angle???

When I installed the cross member drop down brackets it lowered the whole rear end of the drivetrain, changing the angle of the motor.

I'm cornfused?? [img]images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img] You dropped the rear of the drivetrain down and now because you don't like it you want to raise the front up? Or are you asking if someone makes a 1" motor mount drop?

With a 4" lift, if you want to correct your motor angle, you need to ditch the transfer case drop, and spend some coin on a CV driveshaft setup. Other than that, you just have to deal.

I agree with The Bishop [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Get you a SYE and a CV joint rear shaft. It works wonders. Thats what I did for my lift and placed my skid lid back against the frame where it should be. [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Never really understood, WHY you raise the Jeep and lower the high center point [img]images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img]

OH yeah!!!! fill in your profile so we may get to know you better. We like to know who we give this good info to [img]images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img]
