Bilstien 5100's and CV boots

Any problems with CV boots with front 5100's set to 2.5 inches stock OEM coils?

From what I understand a diff. drop kit helps aleviate added angle stress on the CV's & the inner CV boots from doing any additional susp. lift to the front, this is my first IFS 4x so I'm learning too. Anyone out there know the real skinny to this ??

P.S. I also have the 5100's set at 2" on OEM coils

I have the front Billy's set at zero. I don't give the CV's any thought. The higher you go the more stress on the entire suspension.

I am going to install the diff drop also at the time I do the 881's and the 5100's set to "0".
