What does a differential drop kit do?
The diff drop kit, as the name implies, lowers your diff, by way of spacers (pucks) or cradles (brackets), to bring the CV angles back into alignment and closer to the factory specifications. This limits the strain on the CVs, hubs, diff bearings and seals.
How much diff drop do I need?
Not all vehicles/vehicle setups require a diff drop. The general rule to follow is that anything over a 2” suspension lift over stock should consider a diff drop, and those with lifts below this can get away with it.
How much does it cost to install a diff drop?
Diff drops are fairly easy to install and cost about $30 or so.
Do diff drops work?
While diff drops are fantastic, they won’t resolve every issue that can arise from a suspension lift. If you’re lifting your 4×4 to the point where a diff drop is required, chances are you’re not only driving difficult tracks but will also require additional modifications to make things work smoothly.
Why do I need a diff drop?
A diff drop lowers the diff so that your CVs are in better alignment. They will give some correction in the CV angles from lifting the front of your 4WD.
Does a lift kit raise the diff?
Body lifts only raise the body so there is no change in the distance between the bottom of your vehicle and the ground. A suspension lift raises the frame of the vehicle (minus the axle and differential or lower control arms) so a 3 inch suspension lift nets you 3 inches of ground clearance.
Is 150mm ground clearance good?
According to the official guidelines, the average height of the speed bumps or the speed breakers should be 0.1metres or 100mm. You can still expect the height of many speed bumps to be around 150mm or maybe even 170mm.
What is laden and unladen ground clearance?
With laden weight, the ground clearance comes ground 150-160 mm , below the benchmark of 170 mm. The unladen weight of any vehicle is the weight of the vehicle when it’s not carrying any passengers, goods or other items.

Do you need a diff drop for a t-rex266?
T-Rex266 and Ttprodr [OP] like this. A diff drop does absolutely nothing for your alignment. It just drops your differential a touch so the axles don’t have such a steep angle to them. It’ll save the cv boots a little longer.
