Default GPM Shafts

I've seen many pics of broken dogbones on this forum, so I ordered the GPM front universal shafts along with my steering kit. Has anyone managed to damage these? How much lift can I run on the front without putting these new ones in a bind? (I never lifted the front out of fear I would damage those hard-to find stock bones)

Thanks

Ive got pretty steep angle on mine stockers and no probs at all. I even took a dremel to the C-hubs to allow more droop and still nothing. i dont really think you can damage the bones themselves. They are pretty strong. The cups though, im not sure about.

I read through some of the threads again, and it seems the broken shafts happen with lots of gear reduction and locked front ends... I'm not running either, so perhaps It'll be fine...

I have been using the GPM shafts and have more droop on the front and have no issues.
