So 10.5 is basically slammed as **** for this site. You're probably just too low and its stretching the shafts to their length limit.

If the cv shaft is a straight line from the diff to the wheel hub center they will be less likely to fail.

Wheel hop will break them, too

That slammed will mean bump stop city if stockish damper setup is used (very little travel in the rear).
Wheel hop will be impossible to control.
