I heard some talk a month or two back about a better differential drop (one that drops the whole diff not just the front) in the works...did it ever come out? I have a cornfed diff drop on my truck that has served me well for 5k+ miles at 2.75" lift on an ADD equipped truck.

My friend with manual hubs is putting coilovers on his truck this weekend and I want to know what to recommend as I know that he is going to "push the limits" of raising his truck with coilovers.

I appreciate your help

with manual hubs its not as big of an issue. won't effect CV boots as much they will only turn when hubs locked. much more then 3.5" probably start wearing ball joints faster

I wouldnt hold your breath waiting for a diff drop that drops the entire diff b/c the rear bolt ties directly into the rear x-member, and I don see how it could be lowere w/o a drop bracket lift. As to lifting 3.5" with coilovers, it is possible but remeber allmost all downtravel will be lost.

I dont think this is going to become availible, it is not possible to go any lower without cutting the cross member. If you look under the truck you will see that the locking acuator is pretty close to the crossmember making this impossible, unless the crossmember is also dropped.
