Ford Ranger PX1, 2 ,3 / Mazda BT50 Roadsafe 4wd Diff Drop Kit
When lifting IFS vehicles, the CV Joints are put on an increased angle. This increased angle of the CV during vehicle operation can accelerate the wear on the joint, in addition to putting extra stress on the CV boots resulting in splitting and eventually premature wear of the CV. This wear is accelerated further if larger (wider) wheels and tyres are fitted. The New Roadsafe Ranger Diff Drop Kit is suitable for Ford Ranger PX MK1 & Mazda BT50 Gen II up to 2015 only. Later Models of Ranger PX MK2 & BT50 2015-on require a different fitting kit that is not yet finalised. The Roadsafe Ranger Diff Drop Kit lowers the front diff by approx. 34mm in addition to moving the diff forward by 20mm, and includes a bonus 20mm Tailshaft Spacer to take up for this forward movement, reducing potential driveline vibration. The kit install does require a small modification being the removal of a rear mount bracket on the drivers side, and is recommended for installation by a specialist 4WD mechanic. Reinstallation of the bash plate will require additional spacers that are not included in the kit (bash plate brand dependent).
