Have you had any problems with bad CV angles? Harsh ride, blowing CV's, ball joint problems, etc..?

Umm I've replaced my front end about 3 times now.. replaced each cv axel 3 times, and tie rods 2 times.. I'm trying to get rid of the dang gone lift i have on there but am stumped how to get started or what to do.

im telling you right now that its worth the money to just buy a real lift. ive done the torsion key lift a couple times and it aint worth a damn. i put a real lift on this truck i own now and it was way worth the money i spent. it was a pain to do but everything is straight as an arrow. and i personally think it kind of adds a little strength to the front end. could be wrong but thats just the way i see it.

Not sure what gross has to do with the engineering of a lift but I had a fabtech on my previous truck for about 150k before I sold it and only did wheel bearings once and tie rods twice. For the price of the lift its very well built and I would consider one of the higher end lifts that are cheap. My truck was taken off road and wheeled hard along with boosted four wheel drive launch's with slight angle on the cvs.
