Angle of CV joints after lift

I guys just installed a 2.5" frankenlift, took it down to the alignment shop, the guy was worried about the angle of my CV joints. Here's a photo.

Measure from the middle of the wheel to bottom of the flare in the front and let us know what it is. Bet it is about 23 or so
Next all Frankys give you about 4 inches of lift when new not 2.5 so yes your angles are going to be pretty maxed until you take it out and really twist it up off road until then its just going to be that way. One of the downsides to the Franky since a regular OME/Ironman lift breaks in sooner

You are right, it's sitting at 23. I'll go try to break these in! Thanks Tommud

I'd be more worried about all that rust then those angles.

If you want that inner boot to last more than a few miles ... it would be a good idea to cut that clamp, slide that boot down the shaft a bit before putting a new clamp on.

Thankfully it's lasted a few 100 miles and a pretty aggressive back country off-roading trip. Iv been keeping my eye one it. It's a good ideas to pull that boot down for sure.
