Well, when you have a 2 piece driveshaft, lowering the truck makes the driveshaft angled into the carrier bearing so it makes a V-shape. Raising the carrier bearing makes the driveshaft straight instead of angled.

There's almost no clear coat left on that fender. I sanded it all the way down and then spent hours polishing it. It still needs to be feathered with some 1500 or 2000 grit and buffed again, TBH.
