Lifted my truck.. got a few questions?

Well today i put my 3inch revtek lift on and it went on pretty smoothly except for installing my diff drop... I couldnt get the bolts to even budge. It dont look like my driveline angles are really stressed and was wondering if i could get away from it. I also ripped ripped 2 small holes in both my tie rod end dust covers (used a spliter) and was wondering if there is a company that sells a replacement. I was told that you can try to patch it... but not real sure. I repacked them full of grease for the time being until i figure out what to do. Thanks for any help

Keith

Best not to mess with your diff unless you absolutely have to (i.e., vibes or excessive CV angles). Diff drops don't always help and sometimes cause more harm than good. I would search some threads about this before proceeding.
