    Hi, I bought my (06) truck a couple of years ago, it was supposed to have the lift kit installed at the car yard( it wasnt) so I fitted it when I got it home. I dont do a lot of off road so dont use 4wd much, but when I do the CVs are really noisy, I know they need replacing but, my question is will standard CVs be ok or do I need to get longer ones ? Thanks in advance

    Did you do diff drop? If you haven't that might be your problem

    You have to do differential drop, your CV axles are on steep angle and that's what wearing them out. Diff drop with standard CV axles should cost less as well

    No problem. You can get that kit for around 30 bucks off Amazon
