transfer case-no low ???

don't know what i did this time,but i broke two transfer case mounts just replaced them and now i have no four low.
the shifter doesn't seem to be moving far enough for the gears to engage (when you try you can hear grinding) and the shift lever pops back to four high...
any ideas on how to fix ???????

Re: transfer case-no low ???

Well, soooooo many of us other guys have had this happen my friend. It doesnt sound like something new. You probably bent the long side arm, or maybe both. What this does is change the angle of the case, and in turn the angle of the shifter for the t-case. This bending almost ALWAYS keeps you from getting into 4wd low. Trash the long side arm and get a beefed up unit from one of the many vendors/manufacturers. Of course, if you are strapped for cash, you can take the arm off and bend it back into shape but I wouldnt wheel it or drive it hard because it will bend again for sure.

If you try to bend it back make sure your re-enforce it....and good. If you don't have access to a welder and you don't drive your samy all the time you can send them to me and I can hook them up.

You may want to take a look at our beefed up mounting system. We use polyurethane mounts to prevent them from busting anymore. Then we used a custom made long arm (not just a beefed up factory unit), that locks your trace into place, will NEVER twist, and wraps around the tcase to avoid stress fractures and eggeing bolt holes out.

Do you have a body lift?
