    I flipped my rear axle to lower the back end and my differential is coming close to hitting a brace for the bed. Has anyone else had this problem. I havent notched the frame yet but clearance is tighter between the differential and the bed moreso than axle to frame. Just wondering what others have done to cure this problem.

    If you flipped the axle you definitly need to notch the frame. You can also cut out the bottom half of the bed where the differential may be hitting. You won't be able to put anything heavy in you bed though so you may not want to do that. You could also get some bumpstops to replace the factory ones and see if that helps.

    If it is limiting travel you have 2 choices.
    1. Deal with the bottoming out
    2. Cut it
