    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.

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

    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
