    How is your inner CV boots? I just finished installing a toytec ULK and my angle is horrible.

    From toytec coilovers are set at 2.5" lift, I installed it like that and holly shit bad angles, now i lowered it to where only 1/2" of thread from the bottom of the shock is showing and its barely rubbing.

    I wanna know everyone who runs SAW'S, TOYTEC, ICONS, OME, ......... How is your INNER CV BOOTS cause my truck doesn't really have the lifted look anymore.

    I am running the Toytec ULK, on my 2nd gen and my coilovers are at 2.75 almost max, and my cv angles are fine.. Did you opt for the Diff drop, in your kit??

    Hmm, I felt like the diffdrop made a huge improvement, on my angles. Only saying this because it was the last part of the kit i installed, thats where i saw the difference. Yeah I can go up a bit more on the coilovers, but i like the level stance, any higher in the front and the rear looks low, not in to the baja looks if thats what its called..

    OME's with Bilstein 5100's netted me 2.0'' and my angles are more than fine....fins don't touch at all on the inner or outer cv boots. No diff drop here.

    Here are pics of mine. I am running OME 881 with bilstein 5100's at middle setting. I went from 34.75" to 37.5" on drivers side, passenger side was about 35.25" now it is about 38". Its only a week old, so don't know how much more it will settle. I had some grease coming out of the inner/upper cv boot on passenger side. The mechanic told me that there was to much grease in there and with the change in the angle he thinks it is just forcing out the extra grease. There doesn't seem to be an excessive amount, so I am will wait and see. The noise and vibration they said was from the front end being out of alignment which I knew was a little out of alignment before the install. Here are my pictures of the CV's
