For a 2" XT6 lift can I install my front and rear strut extensions and then install the diff, mustache blocks later?

I want to drive the car around while I build a 3.9 LSD with new bushings to install all at the same time.

Speaking of axle rub, Can someone post a picture on where they tend to rub on an EA82 wagon? I don't see where they could on mine?

It's kind of on the crossmember part. Mine does not rub at all, and I have a home made 2" lift.

To the OP, yes, that is just to reduce the angle on the axles, I only have my struts dropped 2" and have put many miles and there are no issues so far!! Make sure we get pics of the project!!:grin:
