    I am looking at putting the 5100's on my truck instead of one of the junk spacer kits. Here is the thing though. I noticed that with the leveling kits with the crappy spacers, they give you spacers to drop your diff. so that your cv's are not in such a bind. Would I also have to drop my diff. if I were to install the 5100's and set them at 1.75 or 2.0 ? Won't my cv's also be in a bind with the 5100's set that high?:confused:

    On the 2nd gens, all the diff drop kits do is actually rotate your front diff....and it only changes the angles by less than 2 degrees.
