I was just curious if anyone has done this on here?.....its my dd and i cant screw it up or have it down to long.I have the 4l60e ready to drop in but would have to remove mine first..

i read you had to jack the body up to gain access to the top two mount bolts?

just curios if anyone can give me some pointers...ive done several trannies just never this cramped..

any help would be greatly appreciated.

easiest way i did one was to drop the crossmember and let the trans hang down to get to the bolts. OR you could jack the trans up as high as it'll go and get to them from the top with a ratcheting wrench. done them both ways but you shouldn't need to lift the body up at all.

on my z71 i just dropped transfer case trany and all......But on the blazer will the torsion bars (whatever there called that run from front control arm to midsection.) be in the way ?

Abd can i remove the trans/transfer case like i did on the z71?..or will i have to drop just the transfer case then the trans?

thanks again guys

t-case has to come out before you take the trans out. the torsion bar crossmember is in the way. i'm surprised you were able to get the tranny and t-case out of your fullsize as a whole. the crossmember should have been in the way for that too.

x2 on removing the trans crossmember first and letting it drop down to the torsion bar xmember making the top bolts pretty easy to get to plus it makes for more room getting all the wiring unhooked from top of trans
