2WD-to-4WD conversion

I have just swapped a 88.5 front axle, and transfer case into my '92 2WD zuki. I had to use the female portion of the rear driveshaft due to the 88.5 having 12mm bolts and the 92 having 14mm bolts. This difference worries me a bit. Is the gear ratio for the 92 2WD the same as the 88.5 for the rear axle? Also, I lined up the yokes when I put the driveshaft together by eye. I test drove it today and there is no vibration, but are there any alignment marks that I might have missed? This is my daily driver, so I would really hate for my zuk to "Come from together" on my way to work.

Re: 2WD-to-4WD conversion

The 2WD Samurais have the same gear ratio as the 4WD models. There are alignment marks on the the slip yoke and the splined end of the shaft. There is a little dot on the end of the shaft that should be lined up with the dot on the collar of the slip yoke.

After I swapped my t-case I noticed my 2WD instrument cluster doesn't have a place for the 4WD indicator light, even though it has wires and a plug to connect the 4WD switch to the t-case.

Re: 2WD-to-4WD conversion

Thanks for the reply. I solved the 4WD light problem by using a 88.5 cluster and splicing an 88.5 harness into the 92. This also got rid of the fuel infection.
