Had a bad clatter sound leaving lunch over 40mph, so I put it on the rack and my driver C/V boot was busted. Ordered both c/v axles since I never changed them. And put on the diff drop that’s been riding in the tool book. And something dosnt look right? I’m not sure if that’s how a new C/V should look. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Pictures are on a car lift so its full drop, with Rough country uppers. Fox 2.0s are turned down with the spacer so it’s around 2.75” level.

put it on the ground and check angles. Doesnt look any worse than other leveled trucks i've seen.

Yeah. Need to see it on the ground. 2.75” of level is going to make them steep, but I’d think with diff drops it would look closer to a regular 2.5”.

I think the extra bellows on the new had me messed up. I though it look way steeper than the factory one, but I guess they even.

there are spacers you need to add to drop down the 4x4 unit this will make it look stock and avoid the axels being too steep. this will avoid premature wear.

Looks about like what mine are with a 2.5” level and no diff drops. Balljoint angle on the UCA looks okay.

what diff drops did you use? I have some 1/2” round spacers I got off eBay but never put them in.

Supreme I think. Some $20 one from Amazon 1/2” kit.

Most likely the same one you have. Mine had the long bolts, but no washers.
