So if anyone is fitting one of these in the future this is how to remove and refit the rear mount into the MR kit.

This is the rear mount removed (i'm holding it upside down to what it would be fitted to the vehicle). There is a large threaded lug nut that is undone from the thread shown. This is accessed through the bottom of the cross member. You will need a 12mm hex head or T-60 trox bit to remove it.
Image

The stud in the centre is pressed in as shown.
Image

Place the non-threaded end of the stud over a large socket and with a brass hammer give it a couple of good belts and it will separate. Be careful not to damage the thread.
Image
Image

The stud head will need to be pressed in again before re-assembling into the new MR part. Do this by placing a long socket over the thread with the head of the stud on a vice or anvil and give a few solid belts to re-seat it. The second pic shows it reseated.
Image
Image

Now re-assemble the bush in the same order in the new MR part and using the long socket again press it back together with a couple of good taps with the hammer
Image

Part is now ready to be installed.

Re: Diff Relocation Kit - Fix Nasty CV Angles

Postby deadset16 on Fri, 30 Oct 2015 3:44 +0000

im looking to fit 33s sooner or later and was thinking of doing 2 inch suspension and 2 inch body lift but cant be bothered to do all the bullbar modifying and hose changing with the body mount. so i was looking at a 3 inch suspension and was worried about the cv angle. if i was to use these diff relocation mounts wouldnt that just defeat the purpose of lifting it to 3 inch couldnt i just run 32s on a 2 inch lift and i would have pretty much the same clearance??? or would it be better to get mr struts and wind them up to 4 inch of lift to counteract the drop of the diff. would winding the mr struts up to 4 inch reduce down travel. also how much difference to down travel do the mr or total chaos uca's make? any help much appreciated.

I think you are overthinking how much the diff drop affects the ground clearance it isn't as bad as you think

Unless you get a proper kit with mounts etc it's hardly worth doin. It's only the boots that tend to wear prematurely anyway from what I've seen. Alot of guys blame their lift for breaking cv's when it was there right foot that did the damage!

also after looking at the bash plate to suit the kit it looks like if you were to hit a sticking out rock with a little bit of speed it would simply rip the whole dropped section off. have you guys consider welding some metal on the sides on an angle so if you do hit something it slides over instead of ripping it off.

also is there anyone who has anything to comment about TOYZX's comment because i find it hard to believe that a whole product range from not only MR but everyone who makes diff drops would make them if it didnt do anything.

ive got a diff drop and the associated bash plate from MR, i still broke a cv and it was entirely driver error, as for the bash plate you would have to hit something properly hard with alot of pace to break it, mine has decent scratches in it form rocks and hasnt broken, without it id probably be up for a new diff housing.
if you look at how a cv works it pretty easy to see that the less angle the better when applying force but as its been said id say most broken cvs are driver related (mine was nearly full lock bogged in sand with the front locker on and a heap of go pedal as the tide was coming in and i was running out of options)
