Any CV axle probs after 2.5" / 1.5" lift Pro 4x owners?

Non Pro 4x can chime in too!

I was told I would likely be buring though them with the angle after the lift.

Edit: I know it may not sit level. Rake is for race cars. Lol

Yes, I am aware I may get coil bucket contact. I can deal with the occaisonaly noise. Will probably get bump stops anyways

And please dont quote the lift sticky. Yea I have read it. I have searched , I want to know if anyone has had problems.

Thanks,

Kurt

Nope, these aren't no Toyota (for those that don't know, Tacos eat CVs over 2" of lift). You are good with stock width up to 3" and up to about 4.5" at titan width. Beyond that you will start to get binding on turns. Although, any angle at all in the shaft will cause wear. The more extreme the angle, the more wear you can expect but I have yet to hear of anyone needing to replace CVs due to wearing them out. They are usually only replaced when the owner has a torn boot and doesn't want to replace just the boot or they are titan swapping.

No problems at 2.5 or even 3.0.
Thanks!

ClemsonAlum,

How did your install go? I'm curious about doing the same for my Pro4X, however, everything I take a look at the ReadyLift site, it says that the kit is for non Pro4X rigs. Do you have any insight into why that might be?

The reason Readylift says the kit will not fit the Pro-4x is because a lot of times the truck does not end up sitting levelled. At least from what they have told me.

I have a 2 inch lift front and 1.5 rear and no problems at all. I have even almost jumped a cliff with my truck and nothing. Going up to a 3 inch lift next week and do not expect any problems.

I have heard that Toyotas are the ones with terrible CV angles from factory....

Jalepeno,

I actually got the 2" spacer / 1" block from Supreme Suspensions. Getting it installed next week. I tried to do it myself, but I broke 2 ratchets and an extension trying to break loose the bolt on the bottom of the strut. Really needed a 1/2" drive breaker bar, but I was tired of working on it at that point

Ill post pics after the install

Arthur,

That is what I suspected. Do you know if it ends up with a slight "rake" or if it ends up with a "nose up" stance if it is not level?

As for the Yota CVs, yes I can attest to that. Even doing a mild OME lift on my old 4Runner I had to swap UCAs to restore proper geometry in the suspension.

I am not sure how it ends up, my guess would be with a slight nose up. Can't remember what they told me when i called.

Are the other components new as well? If not, I would imagine that they are settled already.

Nah. Factory, the difference is probably from the truck sitting on an incline anyways. Oh and for other ppls reference I did need the new Camber / Caster bolts
