I used 5X2 square tubing to make the lift. The diff hanger I welded a piece of metal plate and dropped it 5 inches. What else can do to get more clearance in the middle?
Here is a really bad cell phone camera picture of the wheel.

Put more air in your tires!

I'm building a lift and the same question has been bothering me.
Checking this out here:
(3rd/4th set of pictures from the top)
It would seem that Allied is not moving the differential down.
Now, I'm not saying you shouldn't move the differential, but maybe not quite as much as your lift, say 3" (on a 5" lift), giving you 12" of ground clearence?
I guess it would all depend:
1) on how the axle angles look
2) on how much horsepower you are intending on trying to put through your rear dif./axles.

I think you mean using the EA82 DOJ cups on EA81 axles in an EA81.
Some people have used the longer ea82 axles in ea81 cars to help with the breakage problem, might want to look into that.

the only axle failure I have experianced was with 3" difference , that was a 3" lift on the rear of a EA82 with no diff drop that was on the Blue Bomber sand car , i woldnt go past 2" difference on EA82 and 1" difference on a EA81 , when I saw the Allied wagon at wcss7 it had many split axle boots on the rear

I *think* it would almost go, without saying, that ANY suspension mod on a 10+ year old vehicle with "booted" axles (half shafts) would include rebuilding/replacing those boots. I know I expect to do mine while in there.
I *think* too I did mention horsepower, the standard EA81/2 horsepower isn't going to break things in a hurry, but if doubled (or tripled) the more extreme angles will.
I am concerned a bit about driveshaft angles, but figure eyeing it up as I go will keep me within reasonable.
We must remember too that extreme angles will create frictional losses and most of us are not starting with a whole lot of power to begin with.
