    Get in touch with CoachBuilder either here on the site or call him. Tell him what you have and he'll set you up with what you need. He helped with my previous truck.

    Bust out your favorite angle finder and measure. You are better off with leaf pack shims since these trucks don't have a double cardan CV driveshaft. You'll never get the first universal joint within spec with a CB drop.

    You'll typically feel a "shudder" when taking off from a stop. That's when you know you need them.

    Running on 37s. Was noticing a shudder on take off and coming to a stop.

    Just installed an RC carrier drop. It was super easy (happy to provide any assistance) and quick.

    Still need to check and see if it helped, though (just installed it a little bit ago).
