    Default 1.5 vs 2 inch cv?

    i know from talking to a pro comp rep that their 1.5 inch leveling kit leaves the CV shifts within its tolerances so that it does not bind up. what about the 2 inch leveling kits? will the extra .5 inch cause binding and excessive wear?

    everything but level will use more wear. on the 2 inch my guess is the rubber both will actually wear of faster since its gonna touch !!!????

    The u joints wont hit ..even at 3 inches...but it will 100% be more wear..also if the boot is ripped ..it will rust and dirt will get in !!!
