In trouble shooting my transfer case slipping out of 4h and 4l- It has been mentioned that a stronger spring would be needed. What would be involved in switching the springs out and where would I source? CDAN? I was told you dont need to drop the xfer case to get to the springs.

Easy to do

See this thread: Detent springs

It has the TSB about them and a nice pic of where it is located. You unscrew the cap, remove the spring and put the new one in. I used a small piece of wire with a hook bent into it, to get it out.

Good luck

Hope the spring helps........

Most slip-out effects are cured by replacing high/low gears and sliding collar.........

In car land TSB means "Technical Service Bulletin." However, TSB does have other meanings outside of cars...

Did you check your motor mounts? This is a common problem with a failed motor mount. When torque is applied the drive train will twist and force the shifter against the body making it pop out of gear. To test have a trusted friend sit in the truck with the e-brake on. Have him/her put the truck in gear and start to let the clutch out. You will be standing on the driver side of the rig with the hood open. When he/she lets the clutch out you should not see the engine move. if the engine lifts on (on the drivers side/left side) you have a bad motor mount.

Ok finally got around to pulling the spring today. Streched it a bit and put it back. Took on a test drive and stayed in 4low, only when I tried to climb basically a vertical wall just to test it did it pop out. I will call Marlin tomorrow for a stiffer spring. Thanks for the help, I am glad that is all it was.

Check your engine mounts!!! That is a typical engine mount problem.
