I'd like to see the front CV angles of GMT 800 1500 4WD trucks with lift kits. I'm looking into either a FTS 7 inch lift, or a Rough Country NTD 6 inch lift, a Cognito 6.5 inch lift, or even a Fabtech 6 inch lift. Does anyone have pics of thier CV angles thier truck?

considering you can adjust those trucks with the torsion bars, the owner can set them from perfectly flat to cranked to shit with lift keys if they want so it doesn't matter what lifts in it because its all in what the owner decided.

yep, torsion keys can be adjusted any which way. no matter what lift you have.

better information would be what the angles are at compared to fender height.

Thanks, I always wondered why my GMT400 had such shitty CV angles that caused my CV shaft inner boots to deteriorate so quickly. My 1993 Z71 1500 had a pro comp 6 inch lift which was installed by 4 wheel parts, but the cv angles were horrible. They must've cranked the sit out of them, and it looked good as far as the height went, despite the ride being quite comfortable for a SCRB. I just want a lift that doesn't require cranking the shit out of the front to make it look better or higher. I think FTS or Cognito would do that. Thanks for answering my question.
