    That particular Superlift part replaces the stock mount bracket that is bolted to the side of the differential and bolts into the same mount that is broken on my truck. I'm sure SVO can work his welding magic to fix it as long as he doesn't hit the fuel line blowing up my truck.

    The SAS is done, but I'm not sure if it will flex too well. :scratch::scratch::scratch:

    I might mention this

    the Trailmaster rear drop bracket for the control arms, is also the diff bracket. It does not use the factory bracket hole

    wanna see?

    [​IMG]

    look at the far left bracket

    I think the trailmaster kit brackets are a bit better--see how they are one peice?

    Interesting. But is the Trailmaster lift even being made nowadays? Can you get the differential in and out of the truck with the drop brackets on? At least with the Superlift you could remove the cross brackets to remove the front axle.

    I haven't put my front axle back in yet, because I found out that my rear differential mount was broken. I need to get it welded back on to the frame. :hammer:

    Wow, thats interesting because I would think the little arm shooting back on the diff shooting back would break first.

    A couple of months ago I got 2 new ones on the front. I bought the BFG Mud Terrain KM2's.

    I opened up my front differential yesterday and found this...

    [​IMG]

    I have no idea how long it has been broken. Luckily I have a spare front axle and can replace it from there.
