06 KJ CV Popping after lift and alignment

Just got done installing the 2.5" Daystar lift, spacers front and back with strut plate.

Had it aligned, but the CV pops during sharp slow turns..now what?

Any advice would be appreciated!

Thanks in advance.

CV is bad , and if right side you need to replace the intermediate shaft as well
Don't go to autozones. etc straight to NAPA and get a remanned one. Others are too short

Ok, new CVs on the front drive shaft, it has lessened a some, not a lot, now I can notice the the vibs/humming going away when I'm doing a turn to the left, either when i'm changing lanes on the interstate or just slightly move the steering wheel to the left.

Front driveshaft or front axle shafts? Two different things. If the noise goes away when steering to the left, it may be a sign of a hub bearing. Didn't know anyone was still installing daystar lifts. Just converted one from daystar to a correct lift a couple of weeks ago. Rides night and day better.
