what is the maximum lift before premature front end damage?
 
i have a 2003 tacoma v6 trd and want a small lift. i was thinking 5100's all around and aal in the rear. will i have to do any more to prevent premature front end damage?

I would get the Diff. drop. Its cheap and might save your boots. I did the same set up w/o the diif. drop and my boots started leaking grease so I filled them up and put hose clamps from lowes on them and bought a diff drop. No problems since. Also tire size can play on the suspension as well, so I would recommend no bigger than a 32' or 265/75/16 tire.

Not sure. PM the toytec vendor or call them. There extended length.

It's really the boots that suffer, not so much the CV joints themselves. You are generally good into the 2-2.5" range, or 2.5-3" with higher angle boots. The CV's don't really care, though there is some anecdotal evidence to indicate that they are a bit easier to snap at higher angles, especially if you are spinning them and stopping them hard on the trails.
