just wondering why people lower there
Thanks for any info
To improve their rear driveshaft angle, at the expense of the front. Since the front is a CV, it can better take more angle. Also, the front shaft is only turning in 4wd - making vibration a non-issue.
btw, in the future please only post one thread on the subject. Multiple posts on different forums just take up more bandwidth. Questions will get answered.
We had a big argument about this so we pulled the front driveline and measured it. The front does gain 3 degree's when dropped. That is with 465 and 205. didnt measure the rear.
Question= 88 K-5 8" Superlift, 36 TSL's, just put new front and rear axles in. old axles had the perches welded on at a good angle, new axle is straight. Put it all together, including the 1" zero rate for the saggy butt, and the drive shaft won't go. Got 6 degree shims, put it together, and the drive shaft fits now, but it is at it's maxed out angle and is rubbing. Take away the zero rate and put the axle an inch closer to make it work? /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif or drop the t-case? and if the t-case, how far can i drop it without breaking stuff? Please help /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif
