    I've seen a couple of diff drop brackets for sale for about $100 anyone use one of these? I installed a supreme suspensions 3-3 kit and managed to get 2" total in the front before the a frames contact the droop stops which is ok but then had to change out the rear blocks to 2" so now it sits level but still have a pretty extreme angle on the axle shafts and am thinking with the drop bracket can correct some of this. I dont want to go with a full lift just yet but it rides ok with the pro comp shocks that came with the kit so I'm going to roll with it for a bit.

    I put a small lift kit on mine a few years back and used a drop bracket like you seem to be asking about. There are 2 parts to that change. There is a bracket that attaches on the right as well as some bracketry on the left. I needed to cut off a piece on the left as part of the installation ( it was in the instructions). It is definite worth carefully reading the instructions before getting started, especially if getting parts from a prior owned as I did.

    you dont need a diff drop with just the keys cranked on a obs. you can bolt your upper ball joints to the bottom of the control arm instead of the top side with those aftermarket rims.

    IF your goal is 2-3 inches of lift over stock you can just crank the keys a bit. your ride will stiffen and depending on how much you crank you might develop a tire wear issue because the tires will start towing out.

    I wouldn't recommend just throwing a diff drop bracket by itself in unless you got a complete lift kit. without some other crucial parts you might open a can of worms of all kinds of issues.
