He wasn't speaking of you personally, just the fact that the address was posted.
Good judgment comes from experience, and a lot of that comes from bad judgment.

Diff drop

Postby TrooperPR » Mon Mar 23, 2009 7:37 pm

How about a system that will lower both of the control arms? Heard about it? That would complete the diff drop and have the original articulation on the IFS!!

it is a maker... pull the ones you have, cut out the sections, move them and weld back in.

I bought the brackets from Joe Darlington. See the link right above your post. There are also several writeups on how to make your own.

My question is after the axle drop does the front drive shaft u joint hit on the cross member? I have the picky 96 model. I’ve always heard the 96/97 rodeo is picky on modes.

The crossmember needs to be modified.

Ok so what’s the easiest and what’s the best ways to do the mod? I’d love to get started right away.

The easiest is to add longer brackets where the 4 bolts attach to the chassis. The other simple one is to weld a flat plate across the bottom of the crossmember where the diff is, and then notch the crossmember.
