Default yj slip yoke eliminator

i have a np231, trying to put a slip yoke eliminator on it, and everything went good until i put the rear housing on. the problem i have is the shift rod inside the t-case is to long so the rearhousing will not fit , the shaft is 1/2" too long, has anyone had that problem?
I have a 90 yj 6 cylinder putting on a 4" rough country lift, it all came together as a package, why would the shift rod be too long its seated all the way in????

STEP 9: With the case disassembled inspect the mode fork shift rod (see image above).
If the shift rod measures 10.2 than you will need to cut it down to a length of 9.380. This has been found to be a common problem for 1988- 1989 YJ models. You will need to cut the shift rod at the end located on the back side of the transfer case (Yoke side). Make sure that after cutting all burs and ruff edges have been cleaned.

+2 Read the instructions. Cut the shaft as recommended. At least you don't need to break the case down, just put it in 4 low and measure.
