Rear Drive Shaft

Hello I have a wrangler yj 4.2L Carb, it has 4"leafs and 20cm lift on top of that, I have been experiencing some problems with the rear driveshaft, i have reenforced both yokes and the Ubolts on the yoke snap unless the u joint snaps they are also reenforced, i have a friend who has a wrangler and hes put a V8 in it and has never experienced any of these problems, but he has a Rear CV Driveshaft With Over 3" Lift and slipyoke eliminator, but before i use so much money on this i need to find out if this will solv my problem or if its another reason.Best regards Christopher TyskerudP.S. if someone could tell me how to upload pics i could show the problems i am having.

Not sure if this will help but I kept destroying ujoints when replaced my skidplate and it was bc I forgot to add 1in spacers for my 4 in lift. A friend just fabricated some out of pipe and that solved the issue.

Not sure if this helps...

To add pics scroll down beneath the text box and you will see a bottom to manage attachments (I think). A
