Default Problems with cv axles. 2001 Tacoma

I recently installed a set of 2.5" revtec coil spacers on my tacoma. I had already had the 1.5" old man emu lift on it. As everyone should already know my cv axles are at extreme angles. I'm going through boots like its my job. I will be ordering a toytec drop diff kit soon. I was wondering if anyone knew of a high angle boot or axle? something that would allow me to keep this lift but have less problems with my cv axles and boots. Thanks.

But that will fix your boot problems!

The diff. drop will help you out a lot.

Total Chaos makes high angle boots but I don't see them listed separately on their website. Maybe give them a call.

You could also get manual hubs which would help out a lot... pricey but they are worth it if you use 4wd a lot.

I've been out of the Toyota game for a while but Cootees is the man to talk to.

I'm not sure of many places would carry High Angle boots. You may try looking on Pirate4x4.com.
Just a little bit of advise about Pirate though..... Search first, search again, read, search again before asking. If you check out there Tacoma section there may be something there worth while.
