i recently put an R.E. 4.5in lift in my cherokee, we tried to put the t-case drop in but it wouldn't work. Insted of the case havin bolts holdin it in it had studs coming out if the truck and they arent long enough to put the blocks on top of it?

is there a seperate kit that will fit that style or is it time for some good old drillin and tappin?
any suggestions?

Just go to a Tire shop use the longer studbolts for the wheels for Older VW's should be longer and bolt right in just not sure about the thread pitch can't remember what we did for Fourplay on his(Musta been the beer)?[cheers]

Heat up the studs and take them out (they are just threaded in like the other bolts on the crossmember) replace them with longer bolts M10 x 1.5 x whatever length you need in millimeters[wako] [1b]
