I must be misunderstanding about the the diff drop tilting the wrong way? By dropping the diff it helps reduce the angle on the driveshaft going to the differential right? Am I misunderstanding what your trying to say?
And of course, you lose clearance.
Once again: Diff drops don't do shit on 2nd gens. High CV angles on 2gens don't matter anyway, except for boot wear, and that's easily solvable with the clamp mod. These are not 1st gen CV axles. Toyota screwed some things up on the 2gen, but they did their homework with the front end. It's a rather robust setup for an independent axle. Telling that you see WAY more busted rear e-locker diffs on these trucks than any front end problems.
