    I'm referring to the pinion offset from centerline... anyone know? I've searched my butt off, and never found a number.

    Thanks!

    Crawl under there with a measuring tape and measure the axle tubes... I would do it for you, but I'm in a suit.

    try getting the measurements on the short and long inner axle shafts. the difference should equal the offset.

    and no I don't have it but it may be in the FSM.

    Offset about 4" to the passengers side, just from rolling under with a tape.

    I wish, but I don't have the axles...yet.

    Thanks to all that responded!
