CV boot keep breaking

I have 92 4runner 5 speed 4WD v-6.
Using a set of 4cralwer spacers front and rear and managed to fit 33x12.50 mud terrain.

After driving for several months i have replaced two CV boots since they keep ripping due to the tough angle.

What are some of my options to prevent this from happening?

my thoughts are:
1. loosen the torsion bar and drop the front a little (but that defeats the point of the lift).

2. get touch CVs? who makes them?

thanks for any input.

A front differential drop would let you lower the angle on the CV joints and boots:

And assuming you have the Automatic Differential Disconnect up front, swapping in a set of manual hubs would let you unlock the front hubs and keep the axle shafts (and boots) from spinning while in 2WD.
