    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 !!!

    I hope for u , that now u care about the boot..I HAD IT HAPPEN TO ME !!!!!!

    Your asking for an opinion, then i give u one that realy is true..and u still want to do it ??!!

    GO AHEAD !!!!!
