    grabbing a diff drop? Also, look up the CV boot slide mod in the 1st gen section. Otherwise, you're good to go

    It's a good "just in case". I got a diff drop but within a month this happened on both sides

    A lot of other members had bursts too, since the eibach's give more than 3" of lift on 1st gens- But all of this was before the boot slide mod thread on this site. Havent heard of anyone blowing boots with the slide mod, so I'd do it if I were you guys :thumbsup:

    So the CV boot mod is for 4x4?

    Is this something that can be done at home?
