Default Transfer Case Drop Bolts/Studs removal

Hey jeepers, fairly new to the Jeep world and lifting etc. I bought a 2001 Cherokee about a month ago and immediately ordered parts to start lifting it. Went with a RC 3Ē lift with full leaf packs and front lower control arms. Now Iím having a little vibration issue, I did the rear DS U joints and it helped a little bit but vibration is still visible. Now Iím going with a TC drop from RC. Iím a bit nervous removing the studs and bolts as I have read they tend to break. I have read I can go though the inside and drill down into the frame.

I wanted to know if I could use nurserts/rivenuts. Iíve tried looking up the tolerances and Iíve concluded that the stainless steel rivenuts are strongest. I just want to make sure itíll work.

As long as your hole is the right size for the rivnut, yes it will work. Lots of them from the factory
