Default No longer selling 4 or 5 inch rear DJM kit.

Due to the issues people have I will only sell the 4-5 inch belltech flip in the rear. For local installs I still will be doing the 4 and 5 inch drop kits from djm since I can dial in the pinion angle well here.


Now due to the vibration issues in rear the belltech kit actaully has a carrier bearing relocation kit where as djm does not so this make the vibration issue not come up. That being said if you do have a vibration with the rear belltech kit and relocated the carrier bearing a 2 degree shim takes it off. And remember fatter part of shim to the rear to the back on flipped axles.

People who can't installed them correctly make bad reputation to DJM
There's nothing easier then ajusting pinion angle with the DJM flip.


the carrier can be done almost free or the mcgaughys kit if prefered.

I understand that but some shops are charging way to much money to get it right and I just dont want people saying "tony you ripped us off" or coming back onto me. If they still want the djm flip ill have to do a disclaimer.

It Seems Easy!! But it's not! I have the DJM 4inch Flip! And I have many text Help from Tony! But I have come close to no Vibe...But Still have it!! at 20-25mph! Tony and a few other said Turn the Axle to point at a Down Angle.....Just did this this past Sat...and made my Vibe 3 time worse!! So went back and turned it to Angle back UP...Now it's alott better! Still have to try adjusting it. Why is my truck the only one it seems....that needs to angle the Axle UP?? Just seems weird to me..what others with this kit did does not work on my truck! SUCKS!! U have any suggestions?? Cause this si so frustrating! and it's a new truck...Really don't want the Driveshaft or Any Universal joints fail cause this damn Vibe won't go away! Worst comes to worst I'll swao in the 4Inch BellTech flip. Which I hear good things about no Vibe!

I totally agrre Tony...Just bad for you too in a way cause I think DJM as always been a good source for you.


It's all about giving the pinion the same degree(oposite) as the second next driveline.

1Piece driveshaft: compare to the transmission output: trans up 3deg: pinion down 3deg
2piece driveshaft: compare it to the front part of the drive shaft.

it's not just "point it down". you need to mesure the degree!

Documentation/picture explaining how to adjust (and how not to) is very easy to find.

hmm..Thnx. But I did searches and could not find any how-To's on adjusting this thing. I know U have to have an Angle Tool....And I did not just Point it down...Tony on here// Told me he sets thwese Kits he installs with a -2.1 Down angle. I had mine set at that...and the Vibe got Worse not better! That's WHy I am confused!! Now that I turned it back up some....It's Better but still has Little Vibe. So I feel it's like a Guessing Game from here on out! ...
