    Does anyone out there on ther 2014+ have the rough country 4.5" lift or same size lift whatever brand you have concerned about CV axles angles? I feel like it's too much bend from axle to hub on them even though my lift has the front differential drop kit on it tires I have are 35x12.50R20 jus seems too much too me no serious off roading just highway and in town driving trips to beach...bought truck used it had lift on it already

    Does that lift come with a bracket drop? Or is it just spacers or coilovers? If I'd doesn't have a new frame bracket, a 4.5 inch lift is too much for the truck. Really 4 is the max without that bracket drop.

    Is this a drop crossmember lift... Or coil spacers? I know this is old, but doing some digging on CV angles and lifts

    Your axles are fine... if your boots are not tearing you have no issues... CV’s can handle extreme angles.. you should see what our LT trucks do and we have no issues w CV’s except for minor leaks on the boots where they seal because of bad retaining bands... but you will never get the extreme droop or compression we get on LT so don’t worry about it.

    Dude...put some bellows on that shock. It only takes one little scratch on the shaft and your seals will be shot in no time.

    I have a 4" tuff country lift and it does have I belive about a 1" to Mabe a 1 1/2 inch front diff drop. The CV angles were one of my concerns mostly with life of the of the boot. So far with 25,000 miles they are holding up great so far.

    yeah obviously well understood, I spend a lot of time on my truck and inspect frequently ... while this is a concern bellows are not an option but I appreciate the feedback.
