Lifted Truck issue

does anyone know the drive line angle that comes stock on these trucks, i got a 4inch lift on mine now and its been destroying a rear u-joint once every few months and i got the feeling that at this point the angle is wrong even though the lift is supposed to fix that

Ive got a 4" on mine and i dont have any problems wiht breaking u-joints but id look into getting a new driveline cuz i know breaking u-joints is caused by bent driveline. ive broken my pinion yoke and my carrier is going out but that was stupidity on my part on how it broke but check into that.

Sucks but you're gonna have to take it off and have a driveline/machine shop check it.

OR.... If you have rollers to roll it on and a dial indicator you could check yourself.

when you got the lift you should have gotten some "shims" they mount on the carrier barring to level it out. ive got a 6" with no problems at all!

do you have the carrier drop installed? but i think you have something bent just because even without the carrier drop you wouldn't hurt the u-joints let-alone a pinion
