I've got the AllPhase diff skid and it works fine. The only thing you have to watch out for is when it's tightened down you need to pay particular attention to positioning because if you get it wrong the driveshaft will make contact with it on every rotation. You'll know it immediately though.
It does, but the sway bar rotates very little. I never had any noise or problems come from the U-bolts rubbing the sway bar. I'm soooo unhappy that the group buy went bad. My original diff skid came off my Tacoma and was put on my FJ in March of '06. It didn't come off till All Phase needed it for the group buy. Luckily it was winter time for me during that time so not much wheelin. I did 2 Moab trips and my FJ felt naked not having it. I'm very glad to have it back. The rear sway bar also doesn't make much of a difference in handling with it on and also limits my articulation. With it off I only notice paint missing from were the U-bolt rubbed. No indentation or wear.I couldn't remember from the other thread. Does the u-bolts on yours contact the sway bar?
