1997 Ford Explorer Repair Question
97 transfer case
You are working with two different anamials. First, I need you to understand we only recommend direct fit parts. This is why. When you make changes like this, other things will be different that you don't expect. The sensors on the transfer case will be different, the 4wd actuator will be different... As far as switching the flange so it bolts on, that isn't a really big deal, but if I recall, the driveshaft is a different size which inturn changes the u-joint size. Thus, it won't go together. I recommend getting a direct fit part. That way everything will go together the was is was designed to.
