    JTR Axle Set Back Plates. GET THEM

    98 up guys whenever lowering your trucks i would look into the jagsthatrun.com axle set back plates. When you lower these trucks the driveshaft tends to push back into the tranny when rear dips and hits big bumps which in turn will mess up the trans or rear end (pressure on the joints)

    Mine with a 5 inch drop is perfect now with their set back plate and transmission spacer kit with 4 degree shim. No vibes and rides great.

    interesting, i would like to see if you can tell a difference because mine road great and had no vibrations and it was loawer 5 plus for years. Anything that gets your driveline as straight as possible is worth it to me

    IT SETS it back 1/2 inch about. also plate is about 7/16 thick so lowers the truck by that much. They are also right about the rear wheels not being centered.

    I've got 3" blocks that will be installed soon. Would you recommend these to be installed with blocks or with lowering leafs. If they can be installed with blocks would you put them on top or bottom of the block.

    Pretty sure you cant get a 5+ drop with just drop leafs so id assume they work with blocks

    It was more of a question about having basically 2 blocks stacked on top of each other. I know its mostly a small spacer just wanted to know if there would be any issues with it.
