Default cv joints went after installing torsion key lift

Hi I have a 07 ranger fx4 level 2. I put a torsion key lift in and changed the angle of my front axles. Are there aftermarket ones i could buy or what do I need to do to keep it at that height?

Welcome. No matter how you stretch those lower control arms, your cv's will never be straight unlees you do not lift it. I found you always run the risk of blowing CV's when you crank the lower control arms, So I plan on stoking up!
