    getting ready to cut the welds on the front axle to rotate pinion. I have new SS iroks in route 37"ers, yes the new radials... :D. How much should I rotate the pinion? I believe it is 12-15 deg for a SOA, but I am going with coils, or coilovers(depends on account balance at order time). I will have to be setting pretty high to clear those mighty meats.

    I went 18* for a standard spring over/shackle reversal with a stretched WB, and wound up 2* higher than parallel, just where I wanted it.

    P.S. I'm on stock springs, not that high... with 38.5's. cut open the rear fenders, and trim the fronts back, or remove 'em!

    You should not have to go that tall...

    Just get rid of that non-essential sheet metal..
