    Wanted some input from anyone that has lift kits...I bought a used 2014 Tundra CM 4WD that has a rough country lift 4" blocks rear 4.5" spacer above coil front and rear cross members what I don't see is front differential drop spacers so my CV axles got a pretty good bend from axle to hub...axle to differential bend not so bad...is this any good on axles??? Where would spacers be located??? Should I put some on??? I don't do any serious 4wheeling around town n beach

    I would add the diff drop spacers. Can't hurt. $30.

    Ok but what do they do? They drop the front differential and lower angels of axles? What about front drive shaft?

    Should be. It's just a diff drop, regardless of lift brand. ToyTec recommends on all their coil over lifts that they sell. Strongly recommended for lifts over 3".
