Exclamation CV joint is shot???? NEED some help

I have 3in lift coils with stock shocks and TC uca. Also installed a front diff drop. First ? is can i get 5100's and set them at 0 and get more down travel and a better ride white keeping the same lift? 2nd ? is my cv joints are clicking They will click over bumps / when turning / getting in and out of parking spots / and REALLY F ing pop while off road on rough ground. I have checked my boots and no leaks or cracks but my inner boots are not gonna last too much longer. Also there is some play in the shafts. I can push and pull them making them move slightly. I have a 100k warranty on the truck but will toyota fix my problem? If not should i save and get RCV cv axles made for severe angles? they are 600 a pop Can i pull the axles and repack with grease and new boots? Back the the 5100's my lift coils have a 1/2 in spacer that i want to put in the trash so what would i set the billies at? Running 285/75/16 tires. I gonna shut up now but want to here what you have to say. CHRIS 4X4 can chime in also.
