If you stray out of the OE suspension geometry/movement, you'll trash your CV joints unless you have something custom made.

He had the car bagged yes... It wasn't so much how low he'd go, but how high and at what angles...

The CV and Tri Pod can only move so far and still be able to rotate without putting massive force on the Diff... If I remember correctly, the force was bad enough that it ran the Pinion gears right out of the Diff
