When lifting the 150 Series Hilux IFS, the Constant Velocity (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 and eventually premature failure of the CV. This wear is accelerated further if larger (wider) wheels and tyres are fitted.
The Roadsafe IFS Diff Drop Kit is supplied to suit vehicles where 2” or larger lifts have been performed. The bolt on kit corrects the geometry on the front driveshaft and cv’s, lowering the front diff by approx. 25mm, thus reducing the angles the CV joints need to operate on, and avoiding the expensive replacement of CV’s and boots.
