Hey guys I just got done doing my shackle/tt lift and I am perplexed at an issue with the tt. I measured the front on both sides before I did the lift and only got about 1 inch when i was done. The thing is my p side torsion bar adjustment bolt maxed out and I couldnt screw it in anymore after 1 inch. I was wondering if the was bad for the cv joints even though i only got about an inch of lift. I saw that there was an angle that these should be less than a while back on this site but I can't seem to find the thread about it. If anyone knows this angle I would appreciate it as would my cv joints. Thanks.

it will be fine since its under 2" from ride height, if you want it higher just get a longer bolt and keep crankin
