    I know this information is out there somewhere but I cannot seem to find it. Without the Dana 300 shift level attached, how can I tell what the status is of the transfer case? When I look at it both the "shift rails look to be stick out the same distance. Thanks in advance, Sean

    I have a 4.0 hooked up to a T-5 and the clutch fork will drop/fall out of place after I push the pedal in a few times. This causes the Push Rod to come out. I have yet to put any springs on the fork since I cannot figure out where the opposite side attaches. Is the fork supposed to drop...
