Default Differential Drop for T-bar level

For all those running a T-bar level with questionable CV angles, why does every other make with IFS have diff drop kits for a T-bar level? Is there any reason why theoretically I could not fabricate a drop kit? I came across another forum where they talked about using leaf spring shackles on the front mounts to drop the front diff 1-2 inches. This seems like it would work with the way our diffs are bolted on. Can anyone think of any reason this would not work?

Just get a suspension lift. A pro tip if your cv angles are bad your front end components are getting eaten alive and eventually you'll be replacing everything prematurely.
