    I just got back from the dealer and they said the cause of my ripped CV boot is from the steep angle of the axle. My truck has a 3" spacer lift. Does anyone know how to prevent this from happening again or maybe someone makes a bigger boot?
    help please

    and also make sure you mark where the Tulips come off with a marker or something so you put them back the same way they came apart. and also wrap them with electrical tape other wise they will fall off and you will lose your needle bearings.

    Good luck.
