i have this exact lift on my truck. If your cv boots now are old and brittle expect them to tear (mine did) i replaced them and no issues.

My 4x4 works flawlessly had it for about a year with no issues, cv angles are fine not steep enough to pinch the boot even at full twist / flex, I've tried haha. The shocks are stiff thats the only thing I noticed my rear end has very little squish to it big change from stock shocks and 130k miles.

I had my bars cranked for over a year and a half before my boots tore bouncing it hard in a dove field. I drove on them all winter without any issues other than corroding the hell out of them with the salt and no lube. I replaced them when I rebuilt the front end this spring. That was over 2 years after cranking the torsion bars and I'm sitting at 24.24" hub to fender.

As long as you don't go past 24.25" the Angle isn't going to kill it
