    As you all know I recently installed a 2.5" lift kit and new BFG Mud Terrain tires. I had been noticing a little bit rougher ride and a vibration. I figured it was not big deal since the tread on the BFG's is pretty rugged. Well, today my Toytec Sway Bar Relocator and 1" differential drop arrived and I installed them. WOW! The Diff Drop made a SIGNIFICANT difference in the ride. I would not have believed how much smooother it rides. I mean LIKE NEW, even with the tires. Those of you who have not done it, GET IT DONE!!!!! I did have to do a little modification to the bracket that goes from the bumper to the cross member on the left differential. Once, I put the drop on, it rubbed the brace so I had to re-drill the holes and slide it a hair over. Enjoy.

    Glad it worked out, these newer generation seem to be a hit or miss when it comes to ride quality and vibrations after being lifted.
