diff drop ?

Can I install a differential drop kit on 07 4x4 trd with bilstein 5100's set at 1.75 and will I hurt anything? I know most say you dont need it at that height but I do have some vibration and it goes away in 4wheel drive. I have not had alignment yet. that will be done Saturday. But if I still have vibration after the alignment I was thinking about doing the diff drop kit. Thanks for any and all advice.

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

You can give it a try. If it doesnt change anything, I would pull it off, and look for another source of the vibes.

Thanks for the response guys. I guess I will see what happens after the alignment.

Hey Pascotaco

Truck drives worse after my alignment. Drove pretty good before the align and after the lift. Maybe I need to go have it looked at and re-aligned somewhere else. I did buy a diff drop kit. Havent installed it yet because Im not convinced some of my problems are not from the alignment. Just been real busy. I will post after new alignment and maybe with the diff drop installed. Probably going to be a few weeks before I can get everything done. But I kinda have gotten used to the way it drives. I guess its not that bad but its not right either. I will post as I play around with it a little more. Take care
