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 does it cost to install a diff drop?
Diff drops are fairly easy to install and cost about $30 or so.
How does differential drop work?
A diff drop works by modifying the mounting points of the diff and physically lowering it away from the chassis. As the suspension isn’t affected the end result is less angle of operation in the CV joints as the diff and hubs are closer in alignment again.
Do you need an alignment after a diff drop?
It won’t effect your steering alignment. Just lowers the diff and makes the angles of the cv axles angles less severe.
Does a diff drop lower your car?
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.
Do I need alignment after Diff drop?
Registered. It won’t effect your steering alignment. Just lowers the diff and makes the angles of the cv axles angles less severe.
Is a diff drop necessary 4runner?
Yes you need one and No, it’s not hard to install. You increase your risk of damaging your CVs without a diff drop installed.
How do I increase my diff clearance?
Taller Tyres and Rims Another way to increase ground clearance is to fit taller rims and tyres on your car. There are two ways you can do this. One way is boosting the tyre height by upsizing, while retaining the rims. The other is using taller rims and taller tyres.
