My RC Differential drop bracket is broken. Did somebody have the same problem, and how could this issue be solved for good?

Re: The General Rough Country 6 inch lift thread...

I have looked at your thread, but I think this is another location at the differential. I talk about the bracket close to the driveshaft.


It is the following part (circle) and is located at the red x:


The RC picture:



And now the real life:




on the top/left side the part which comes from Rough Country, an the down/right side the Toyota part. The RC part is brocken on both sides between the bushing and the bolt. For me it seems to be to thin in relation to the Toyota part. The thickness of Toyo is 14 mm, the RC is 6 mm and is obviously a cheap, inadequate part.

The other side, the attachment point in the crossmember



Any suggestion?

I have changed that same bushing twice due to cracking, I was using upper shock bushings (with a little modifying) to replace it. I finally ordered the correct bushing from Rough Country and noticed itís now made of Poly. I havenít installed yet. Perhaps the Poly bushing is too hard/rigid to soak up any vibrations causing bracket failure? Just to clarify, my bracket never failed, just rubber bushing cracking.

Re: The General Rough Country 6 inch lift thread...

I have installed another rubber bush between the original mounting and bolt/washer (inside the cup). It’s not anymore iron against iron.

I have had any problems, 7 years/100.000 miles driven with this setup.

The (upper) bushing looks ok.

This sounds good, I will try this. Thanks
