Driveshaft

After the differential is dropped, the front driveshaft needs to be removed as well. Notch a big section of the crossmember to make room for the driveshaft to fit once the differential is dropped. Superlift included a weld-in reinforcement in their kit, but even after Larry Garcia welded it in, we still had to grind a portion of it away to get the driveshaft from rubbing after the kit was finished and we went for a testdrive. You'll also have to remove a heat shield for clearance on the exhaust tube that runs right behind this crossmember.
