    coyote with tk0600. lift spacer size for tranmision mount?

    Hello all I have a coyote with an 8.8 and Tko600. I'm using factory fives engine spacers that gets sandwiched in the mounts on both side. I was wondering whats the best size spacers to put in between the transmission mount and tko600.



    Thanks

    I used 1/4 inch steel plate, cut to size. I made four, but only needed three. I got the idea from Wareaglescott.

    Like AL said, 3/4", and add as Al is showing, between the trans and trans mount, so if you ever remove the trans, they won't be a loose piece and you won't forget to put them back in.

    With no shims, the driveshaft U-Joint will rub the frame cross member. Ask me how I know.

    3/4" net. I also followed wareaglescott's approach, but only had access to 1/8" thick sheet so used six of them.

    If you are using IRS, spacers are necessary for the transmission. I'm running the Moser solid axel 8.8 3-link itto 600 and Coyote. NO spacer and the pinion angle is bang on.

    Other's experience is nice to get an idea but I would use a stack of fender washers for trial fitting and measuring. Once you have the dimension you need you can make more permanent spacers.
