Trying to figure out if I should install the diff drop when I throw in my OME springs. I will wheel sans sway bar but commute with it on. What say you guys?

I'm not a fan of them personally. You put a lift on so you can run taller tires and get more clearance under the diff, then you lower the diff and reduce your clearance. Working at cross purposes. A common 3" lift does not make extreme angles on the CV joints.

I put the toytec 2.5" coilover kit on bilstein 5100's and it came with a diff drop. Installed it and then took it off because I couldn't get the skid plate back on. The shaft angles aren't extreme enough to bother with it.

It throws off the pinion angle on the drive shaft to the tcase too. Unless the diff drop kit comes with a new rear mount and bushing. Likely, it doesn't.
