I dropped mine. I don't remember the kit I bought but it was basically a couple 1/2" washers and longer bolts. It didn't change it much it honestly.

I picked up a dif drop kit, itl just haven't received it yet. My cv boots are rubbing all over themselves and already show "wear"

Installed my .5" diff drop. Took about 7 minutes lol.

May not look like a big difference, but it is in my opinion

In the first pic you will see the accordion fins on the CV boot are touching and if you can zoom in you'll see light wear rings on the accordion fins. This is what would cause the boot to fail over time, which causes the grease to sling out and the dirt to get in and kills the CVs

In the second pic you can see the fins are no longer laying against each other which will increase the life of the boot exponentially in my opinion.

I was reluctant because $28 for two bolts and two spacers...I mean, come on, really?!
But...after seeing your pics, I can see this being completed in the very near future.

Completed on Sunday...wasn't too difficult. Oddly, the vibe I had after installing 20" wheels/tires is gone...?
