    If you can't find that actual measurement, try 2" showing on the bell. Most trucks I've driven it seems that's where the bags run, with some a touch higher, say an inch. At least that gives you a ball park to see where you're at.

    So, tractor leveling valve, carrier bearing. Are transmission bolts all in there? Peeps have cited that before.


    I had an issue with engagement of 9th and 10th gear. After it was hot with a ten speed.
    But I hauled liquids smooth bore after 220k of that on top of the first 200k of not, well I had drive line issues. Reman trans cleaned it up. But I was also told some times it could be just the clutch wearing weird from the surge. But this is speculation, except for it got cleaned up. Oh the top box was fine.
    Anyway take it to a good drive line shop would be and end game check. I dont know of a good one.
