did a 2/4 drop on my awd with spindle and shackle/hangers a couple months ago. yesterday the left front axle inner joint popped off. from what ive gathered on here is 2 inch's is the most you can go without problems. well im having the problem at 2 inches. so i want to install some cv axle spacers cause it appears the joint is being pulled out of the housing, didnt really break anything except for the boot. so what size cv axle spacers should i be running, i was thinking either 0.5" or 1.0"

well i added 1 inch spacers on each side and the axles still had enough play in them to where they aren't binding up. i put maybe 30 miles on it like this over the last 2 weeks. seems to be ok. part number for the spacers is 10805 made by tuff country.
