Default miles on a leveling kit?

Does anyone have a good number of miles on a 1500 with a leveling kit? I bought one from 2.5in on ebay and installed it on one side and didnt like the angle that was put on the axle and the control arms. It looked to me like it would wear everything out so I took it back off.

Yes running them at a greater angle is going to increase the wear on the cvs and on the ball joints!! A 2" level kit does change it some but as for noticing it in wear it would be hard to say cuz these parts usually last well over 100000km so its hard to time stuff like that to determine how much more the wear is going to be on it!!

I can say it probably won't decrease life to like 20000km, it not going to be huge, when they do happen to hit the hay...not sure how long they have been run so far, just upgrade to better ones that can be used at higher angles!! There is always a price to pay for lifting a vehicle no matter how small....how badly do you want the nice leveled look is what you need to ask yourself
