After a long R&D process we are almost ready to roll with the Monster Rides Diff Relocation kit... Production stock is being built at the moment.

Drops the diff about 27mm.

More details and pricing in about a week.

We will look to launch it with a Group Buy as well.

Thanks,
Matt

    Not necessarily. 27mm may make harder. :(

    Thanks Dave.... I think[emoji22]
    Ahhh what am I concerned about? It's lifetime oil ain't it?
    The good folk at VW reminded me of that when I ordered 3l of rear diff oil[emoji58]

    So this essentially allows more suspension lift? If I already have an Outback Armour kit how would I go higher? Strut spacers?

    Yes mate... more suspension lift... with strut spacers or bigger springs.. preferably bigger springs... once the parts are released i will look to do the same

    Ultimately... yes mate... but most aftermarket should be ok for another inch... however best to check with the manufacturer. I ran a hilux with drop down diff, 2 inch old man emu's and inch strut blocks and never had a problem

    Thanks mate!

    So I've currently got Billies with 038s, fitting this effectively won't give any more lift, just improve CV angle, but will allow for more lift if I fit either; a strut spacer (sacrificing down travel), longer springs (sacrificing down travel), or longer struts and springs (max lift and suspension travel). Correct? Sorry, first 4x4 with IFS...

    Kingy.

    No worries mate... its all relative to how you use your truck... if you are mostly on the bitumen but often hit the beach or dirt tracks then your struts with bigger springs should work fine ( both these and spacers reduce some up travel but shouldn't be a problem) however if you are do any full on offroading that requires as much wheel articulation as possible then you will need to sort longer struts/spring package.[emoji3]

    Does Outback Armour do bigger springs for the amarok? Or do they need to be custom made?

    Pretty sure they don't... yet... Might be able to look at a King spring or another brand to work with the OA strut to get more lift

    How would we go about getting longer struts and springs for bilstein, love my bilsteins and wouldn't want to go to another brand

    [MENTION=4079]ARoky[/MENTION] I think I recall reading recently that the updated front struts from Bilstein are actually already longer than OEM.

    I would normally assume any bilstein other than std bilsteins would be custom and cost more, and any height indications would refer to bilstein coils. But i dont know.

    Not so squeezy!! Looking at that picture, the standard protection "bars" will need to move, but wouldn't be too hard a job?

    The bash guards supposedly bolt up. I dont know how yet.

    Speaking generally, the advantage i see in doing this diff drop is if you fit longer travel shocks and thus gain more droop travel.

    If you use it to increase the ride height above a normal raised height, the lower arms could end up at too much of an angle, which will create poor handling.

    Ideally if you want more height you should lower the inner mounts for the lower arms as well.

    Still very much initial thoughts though.

    This would require a mod plate wouldn't it?

    So is it just me or does 27mm not seem like a lot of gain for a "serious" mod..... I guess what I mean is if I'm only lifting my Rok 1.5 inches at the front should I get this fitted like I initially planned to, or is it only for those who need to correct their CV angle with a 2.5 inch lift??
