    Seems like the gaps between bushings and mounts should close up more. I’ve put a jack on it and got no movement. Bolts are as tight as I can get em without putting a breaker bar on it.

    Wow, how much is that? looks like 2"+
    It might help a little if you loosen the bracket bolts on the differential then re-tighten them.

    Measuring it on the truck, looks like about 1-1/8”. It’s what came with the kit from rough country.

    I’ll give it a try loosening the other bolts.

    Don’t forget to top off your differential fluid. Open the fill plug and fill it to the threads. Now that your differential is tilted it’s going to be low. I’ve seen it recommended to add until full again to make sure everything stays lubricated properly.
