Question Yet another billy 5100 question

I'm sure this question has been answered a million times already but if I get the 5100's and set it to 1.75" to level out the truck do I need a differential drop? What about 2.5"? This is for a dc.

Thanks in advance

1.75 setting Diff Drop? Prob not (never heard of anyone getting A diff drop just for that setting) In the end it just depends on if you are getting drive line vibrations, but if you do get vibrations at 1.75 get shims to correct it. Just all depends on the truck, some wont vibrate some will.

But 2.5" setting its advised to get a Diff drop.

Diff drops don't do anything useful on second gens.

There a good discussion on it in this thread:

I know most people say it doesn't do anything. But it did help my CVs out by getting the diff drop so if you go 2.5 and your CVs look crazy it's definitely worth looking into.
