Diff Drop lowers the front differential. Carrier Beraing drop lowers the carrier bearing behind the transmission.

Personally, I would do axle shims before the carrier bearing drop.

I make CB drop brackets for the first gen and the Tundra, I really need to get the 2nd gen bracket available. It has cured vibe problems on every truck that got one. I'm not saying it's a magic cure all, (has been on the Tundra's though) but it definitely gets the center of the shafts to a more normal angle since most kits only come with a few washers to use as spacers. I'll get moving on this bracket for you guys. I add a 3rd attachment point to the top that uses a factory hole in the crossmember and gives some extra support in this important/sloppy area.

wait for beefed taco to make a bracket for the 2nd gens.

i just put one of his drop kits on my 1st gen and the difference is amazing. truck drives smoother, accelerates smoother... just feels all around much better. the quality of the bracket was top notch too

thanks again Brian!

We actually don't manufacture a carrier bearing drop kit. We sell the OME kit which according to them is the correct amount of drop for 3 inches of lift.

Will a carrier drop for my stock 09 taco??

Hey guys I have been reading all about the carrier bearing drop for all the lifts and its curring the vib problem. But mine is stock and I have the same issues as you all do, shutter on take off and the 5-30 mph fast vibration. Any thoughts.

Question Diff drop or cb drop?

not sure if I should post in here or start a new thread. But I have a similar problem with my 06 taco. Not sure if I'm crazy, but I too could feel/hear a vibration sound while driving over the winter. I recently just had a 3" levelling kit installed and now I can reeeally hear the vibs. I'm mostly just looking for some advice as to what I can do to fix it from some one more experienced. I've called around and taken the truck to a couple shops. but no one seems to know what is actually casing it.
