OK i know i should be able to figure this out right? Anyway my question lies in the way the bolts are supposed to go. for the tcase drop you need to remove all 4 bolts, and replace them with new longer ones, and spacers. I already have the kit, just haven't put it in yet. So on each side where the bolts are you have a bolt going up (hex head on bottom, nut on top) and you have a bolt coming down (nut on bottom, hex head on top) The ones coming up seem to be the easy ones, but where is the NUT>??? is it welded in there (and where is there), or will i need to fish it out and line it up to the bolt?

Now the ones coming down. I take the nut off right- then how do i get the bolt out, where is the little bastard, hopefully it's not welded in, how would i get the new one in there. I know a bunch of you have done this, so let me know. I'm pretty lucky at 5ish inchs have hace ZERO vibs, but i wanna get it in there before i get to the 7".

Thanks Guys,

Todd

1 on each side on mine have nuts, i swear. They are the ones i assume that have the bolt coming down and then there is a nut on the bottom (the part you can see from under the truck)

Thanks

smiley & XJ89XJ,

thanks guys i get it now, what can i say i'm inbred (not really). Anyway drilling that 1 3/4" hole sounds like a good idea, that was my next question actually, how to get the new nuts on!

Thanks Guys,

Todd
