no but the farther they get from straight the shorter their life span...at 0* a taken care of u joint should last pretty much forever

thats not even possible unless you lowered your truck some incredibly stupid amount that put the pinon directly in line with the t-case output...and that would probably require some major frame/body/suspension modification haha

You are saying an axle has the ability to push oil up hill?
they do actually...well they dont push it up, the gears carry the oil up, providing it is thick enough...a good 80-90 should carry pretty nicely...not only that but when the ring gear especially get spinning fast enough it tends to throw oil every where...the main problem with a large amounf of rotation on a diff is the fill/drain plugs are no longer accurate and it might take more or less oil to fill it

I used a 90* elbow to raise the oil level in this old Dana 60 I used to have under my truck before I switched to the 70-U.

I also put a front Dana 60 oil slinger in it when I was changing gears. There was enough room in the shim pack to get it in. It holds the oil up in the pinion bearing if you have to tip in a lot.

Some guys think if they run a 1410 ujoint they're invincible and will run at any angle( had this debate many times not naming names) Haha not the case. Though it will run at a higher degree but in a truck like mine with a 21 degree shaft angle is that gonna last uhhhhh yeah NO! But with my cv and 1350 joints 10.5 degrees on each joint in the cv I think that's a little better.. But I'm just guessing right...
