I have been having trouble with CV joints going bad in my 2002 Ford F150. I have heard that the torsion keys that I have in puts them at a bad angle. What would be the best way to fix this?

The CV joint on the passenger side is usually the one that goes bad, but I had both of them replaced last year. I was wondering if a suspension lift for the front instead of the keys would solve this problem?

How are the joints failing? What are the symptoms? Are you installing new ones or rebuilt half shafts?

Lift kits are never the solution. They add all kinds of new problems including reduced handling and braking, and increased tire wear. Lawyers and insurance investigators love to find modifications like those, ... On the other guy's truck.
