transfer case vibration? long..
88, stock transfer case gears, 5.13 r+p, 5" Calmini SR lift, new motor and transmission mounts, cv DS in the rear with 2* shims to angle pinion up to xfer case,
Both arms on the xfer case look straight to me and all the rubber mounts seem alright. I can barely budge the xfer case when laying underneath the vehicle and pushing up on it.
I thought maybe the intermediate shaft? So today I had 2 new u-joints put in it. After replacing the u-joints in the intermediate shaft the vibration got a little worse [img]images/graemlins/mad.gif[/img]
The vibration is the worst in 2nd gear, and less noticeable the faster it is driven. clutch in or out, accelerating or decelerating the vibration is there.
1. When viewing the xfer case from the side, should the front pinion sit a litte bit higher than the back? I dont think it should matter runnin a cv in the rear!
I plan on getting a beefier xfer case mount, but need to get rid of the vibration, not just mask the problem..
The vibes have gotten worse over the past couple months, all parts mentioned above have been replaced after the lift was put on. CV DS went on after the lift (stock DS was way to angled with this lift). motor mounts were next (definitely needed), helped w\some of the vibes, trans mount was next (no noticeable diff.)
Just gettin tired of replacing parts and not correcting the issue.
