Ok so i had a broken CV Joint fixed less than a year ago. Took my car in to find out what was wrong with it because it was shakeing. They told me i had another broken CV Joint. The same one I had fixed. Now how long are CV Joints supposed to last? And why would it break? Is it because of my roush springs? Help please!

How often do you spin the tires. Part of it may have something to do with the lowering, and part may have to do with bad driving or bad roads. Maybe you should check out driveshaftshop.com and upgrade to stronger axels.

Lowering the suspension of the vehicle puts the CV joints at an "unnatural" angle that they weren't designed for. The angle is well within operational specs, but you can expect slightly shortened life of the joints. Normal life is right around 100,000 miles, or when the rubber boot begins to tear and spit out grease.
