I have heard a lot of people say they did not do a diff drop on a 3" lift. They say its not needed. Only when you go above 3" will you need it.

thats what i've heard to. i'm planning on the 2.5" spacer up front and getting the extra 1" in the rear from the suspension upgrade...so it should be levelish and i dont really wanna do a dif drop either

i would do whatever is necessary to try to keep all the angles stock. after the lift i would definately do the drop to reduce wear adn tear on CV and UV joints.
