CV axle angles screwed!

So I recently bought a 2007 dodge ram 1500 and was quick to get it lifted so I went to a "guy" who lifted trucks at his home. He placed a 4" spacer ontop of springs and a 3" spacer in the back to level the truck. He also did a 3" body lift. Now after taking it to my mechanic to install my new gears (went higher gear ratio after purchasing 38" tires on 20" wheel) he told me my cv axle was way too angled and would be a matter of time before I did some serious damagae. So he suggested I ordered a true lift kit. I ordered a 6" rough country and it's on its way. My question is, do I have to take the 4" spacer on top of the spring off or can I leave it? I really would want my truck to be level. Help please!!!

on the other hand, if i did decide to keep the spacers, would it cause any trouble? The thought of my truck adding another 6" to what I already have is tempting but dont know much about lift kits, pretty new to the 4x4 scene.

oh ok, well the guy said it was a 4" in the front and 3" in the back but I haven't seen them personally. So you think it be best if i just took off the level and just use the rc kit? and yes i ordered 4:56s, I was going to go with 4:88 but the guy from summit racing said that would just kill my mpg

are you talking about lifting it with the spacers I already have? front or back? l I was reading up on the rc website, they provide 4" blocks for the rear, right now I have 3" blocks in the rear and 4" block on top of spring in front, so I was asking if i could leave both blocks on and do the lift that way, which would bring me up to 13" lift. But was told it's not possible or unsafe to do so. I'm just worried my tires wont fit, those tires n rims cost me a whole lot. This is the link to the lift i bought.
