Diff Risers

I got delrin mounts for my differential. I want to mount them "upside" down to lift the diff. Should I bother? I don't plan on going Super Low but I wanted to know if. It would hurt the geometry or whatever. I dont have subframe risers to go with them so I thought I should ask if anybody here has diff but not subframe risers.

yes, it will hurt the geometry.

you're going to mess up the pinion angle because the front diff mount won't move.

if you're not going super low the axles will be no where near the limits of their travel

the diff location has no affect on suspension geometry.

Cool. I figured it wasn't necessary.

your diff will be pointing downwards. The transmission to the diff already has the tranny higher than the diff, so its already at a slope heading down from front to rear.

you would have to raise the subframe as well, but the problem is that if you raise your subframe more than 1/4" some of the mounting will start to hit the chasis. So flipping the bushing would be like raising the mounting like 1/2", too much
