That's more severe than I'd guess that CV joint is really designed for, but there are a lot of people running the SuperLift so that angle is on every SuperLift out there. Are some running actual U-joint vs CV joint? I've seen various opinions about Cardan u-joints but I wonder if that would be an option...?

Since that joint is right under your seat if it's making any noise at all you'll hear it and/or feel it. Is there a chance the boot is ripped and grease has been thrown out of it?

Boot appears OK. I'm considering a Tom Woods replacement with double Cardan but the link on their website is not working...hope they still make it.

I know a few guys who run them on their KJ's - though few if any people do a cradle lift like the SuperLift. I think this is what you're looking for:
