Default Rough Country 2.5" suspension lift updated redesigned??

I tried to look around the boards and read about Rough country suspension lifts. I couldn't find anything about this redesigned 2.5 Lift. I know the original lifts eat your ball joints and CVs contantly. I noticed in this new, at least new to me Rough Country 2.5 lift it has a Differential bracket? Does this Differential bracket realign the CVs so you don't burn them up? It seems the two problems are CV angle and Ball joints taking a beating. If these issue are resolved in the new design then I am going up 2.5"

Here is the link

Chevy / GMC Suspension Lift

If this subject has already been posted I am sorry I just couldn't find anything.

There is a post about it, a few have already installed or in the process of doing it. I have to wait until next year to buy it. And as far as I have read there are brackets for the diff to lower it.

I'll give you a rundown.

Any sort of lift, especially suspension, is gonna find your weak points FAST.

Also if you get a Solid Axle Swap then you wont have the CV angle issue and shouldn't eat Ball Joints...

So in short. Complete SAS, then lift.
