Diff Drop Kit - 200 Series Toyota Landcruiser
When lifting IFS vehicles, the Constant Velocity or CV joints are put on an increased angle. This increased angle of the CV joint during operation can accelerate the wear on the joint, as well as putting additional stress on the CV boots leading to splitting & eventually premature failure of the CV. This wear is accelerated further if larger wider wheels & tyres are fitted.
When lifting the 200 series cruiser, the Constant Velocity (CV) joints are put on an increased angle. This increased angle of the CV joint during operation can ccelerate the wear on the joint, as well as putting additional stress on the CV boots leading to splitting and eventually premature failure of the CV. The wear is accelerated further if larger (wider) wheels and tyres are fitted.
The Roadsafe Diff Drop Kit is supplied complete with CNC Machined spacers and fitting kit.The bolt on kit corrects the geometry on the front driveshaft and CV's, lowering the diff by approx. 25mm, thus reducing the angles the CV joints need to operate on, and avoiding the expensive replacements of CV's and boots.

ARB BASH PLATE FITMENT
When fitting the Roadsafe diff drop kit in a 200 Series with ARB bash trays there may be interference & you will be required to space the bash tray in order to fit the kit.
SB043 Universal Bash Tray Spacer kits can be utilized by modification when fitting ARB bash plates on a 200 Series with the Roadsafe diff drop kit. When using this kit on a 200 Series the 8x spacers will need to be drilled out to 10.5mm. You will also need to source 8x M10x1.25p x 60mm long bolts (not provided)
These spacers will need to be installed above the bash plate & tubular sub frame of the bash tray. See the figues below for reference.
STEERING RACK CLEARANCE.
In some instances the main long bolt with touch the rack before being fully tight. place an appropriately sized washer under the bolt head to reduce the length available on the bolt providing the clearance needed.
the instructions are out of date ,the parts are good but i cant find where some of them go
