You also don't want to run without a load on the axles/cv joints etc and
with the wheels off the ground you are increasing the angle of the half
shafts beyond normal spec which is also not a good thing.I agree with you
maxpower, it's a bad idea .
You are not running beyond the fully extended suspension angle and
will NOT cause any damage to the U-Joints at this angle. You are NOT
running at high speed. No load on the CV joints? No problem. Happens
ALL the time at coast. I've checked front bearings that way since
front drive first became common in the early 80s, and rear bearings
long before that. Do you need to be carefull? Yes, but like I say
about power tools, if it's of any use at all, it's dangerous. Just use
some common sense and be carefull. Knowing the danger is well over
half the battle.
