I kmow this is old but its also permanent so i thought I'd throw this out. De-crank the bars on this lift and i bet ball joint life goes up, there's a lot of angle on everything. And the part of the frame the uca is hitting is the droop stop doing its job. And the reason it's being used is because the ride height is so high. The dirty part of the shock shaft says there's plenty of room to drop it and have good compression travel plus theres a mile to the bump stop that the lower arm normally rides on.
