    I've read up on it a bit throughout the site, but still have a few questions.

    I installed an OME lift about a month ago, and so far I have no vibes even with 4 wheel drive on. Lately though after looking at my truck I have decided I'm going back in to put in the top plate spacers when I put in my new UCA's.

    Should I install the diff drop even if I still have no vibes? Is the diff drop designed to get rid of vibes or just to lower the boot angle going to the wheels?

    I know the lower the angle the less wear on the joints.

    Also I have the same question about a carrier bearing drop for my driveshaft. I have no vibes at any speed right now. I assume I should just leave that alone.

    Sorry if my questions are kind of vague, or my terminology is off.
    Thanks!

    Wait on both , see how it is after you add the spacers and UCAs

    I installed the CB drop and did not install the diff drop , no added vibes

    The diff drop is trash for 2nd gens. It doesn't really do much.
