I'm curious if you guys think my CVs are not at a good enough angle and I need to lift my truck some more.

It's not the best picture but you can see that the CV isn't flat rather the differential is lower than where it hooks into the tire, could that be causing my CV boots to rip as you can see in the picture?

I'm always willing to raise my truck and to do that I'll probably need to do an add-a-leaf

FYI:Z85 I have Suspension Maxx's Torsion Keys giving me about 2-2.5" of lift in front longer shackles in rear to level it off, 1.5" body lift, .75 diff drop and ball joint flip.

I got these CVs replaced last monday and 5 days later it was already ripped, so I need to find the issue. Any thoughts?

the inner boot wasn't seated correctly. The small end is pushed too far up, it should be about 1"-1.5" closer to the other boot.
