DS Axle keeps breaking. Need help figuring cause

i have a 2006 mazda 3 S 2.3. It keeps breaking the drivers side CV axle. Not sure why.

It has been lowered on Koni FSD with eibach springs, and awr Passenger mount and rear mount.

I am thinking its a mount specifically maybe the transmission mount because the motor seems to sit at an angle for some reason.

any help appreciated thank you

That PMM doesn’t look right. If you have the OEM mount still, reinstall it. Definitely look over the rest of the mounts as well.
