    Got some questions about a diff. drop kit. I lifted the body 3" last weekend and I love the look. BUT, my CVs are lookin pretty angled. So diff drop it is. Canyon seem to find a kit though. Any suggestions?

    If you only did a body lift that should not have changed any suspension or cv angles. Also, diff drop kits are not available I'm pretty sure. Thats a big part of why the amount you can lift these explorers is so limited. Someone made a custom lift kit that dropped the diff and went higher than 6 inches, but never took it to production.

    A body lift does not at all affect the suspension, your CV joints are exactly as before the body lift.

    As mentioned, there are no 'Diff Drop' kits. Due to the rear axles passing through the frame, a diff drop is useless in the rear anyway.

    I have a 3" body lift, with a 2" suspension (strut spacer) lift and my CV and Ball Joint angles are not that bad really. Plenty of room for 32" x 10.50 MT's (265/75/16)
