    Default Front diff drop brackets for 99 Suburban

    Hello
    Does anyone know where i can get those. I know they come as a part of a couple of lift kits, but i have been having hard time finding them as a separate part.

    Are you looking for any particular brand drop rackets or are you making a home made kit?

    Brand doesn't really matter, i leveled the ride and would like to keep everything in line as far as CV joints go so i don't get to much unnecessary wear and tear.

    The lift kit drop brackets are 4"-6" of drop depending on the lift kit. This is way to much drop for just a leveled truck. How did you level your truck, crank the stock torson bars or new torson bar keys?

    New torsion bar keys, front sits 2'' higher now. Read on here, i believe that some people had issues with CV joints and boots tearing after they did that. I know everything will wear out a bit faster now, just want to keep it to a minimum. Do you think it's good the way it is.

    Alot of times people blame there leveling kits for wearing out there front suspension parts. Well the parts were most likely worn some when the leveling kits were installed and people assume it was the leveling kit. Yes the parts will wear out faster but not that much faster. You'll be fine just keep everything greased in the front end.
