i wouldnt worry too much about it honestly jason...as long as you dont go wheel on it and lock the wheels at full turn and put a lot of pressure on the cv you should be ok

As long as the fins on the CV boots are not touching, you should be fine. I cant tell in the pic if they are or not.

Also, the instructions I was sent from ToyTec told me to set the 5100s on the second setting (.85) then adjust the coilover to 1" of thread below the adjusting nut. This would give me 3". I did this and I got 4.25". I adjusted down 1/2" yesterday and the lift only went down 3/4".

I called ToyTec today and they said that those instructions aren't right - that the strut should be set at stock. I also rechecked the instructions I have and it says the "second slot from the bottom". I'm going to scan it and send it to Doug (at ToyTec) tomorrow just so he knows I'm not lieing...

Just trying to be prepared.........
its a decent amount of labor...however...i've changed a couple on other trucks in the middle of a trail...

I think your ok. BUT, if you are on a trail, it never a bad hing to carry a spare complete front shaft. Easy repair.

Why would an alignment need to be done if the CV is replaced?
