    Consider the stock spring perch 0 degrees.

    Thanks

    Are you doing a double carden joint in back? You'd only need to rotate the rear axle to point at the T/C if you had a double carden. If not then you need to keep the pinion angle the same. HTH

    then the angles need to match eachother, or else you get road vibe!!!

    almost straight on

    I always wanted it to be straight from the transfer case to the pumpkin, however, I made my driveline angle just below being straight as for when I'm on the gas pedal and under torque load, I have a straight driveline.

    I thought it was wierd at first but I got used to it... and I have no driveline vibration as it's a very subtle angle.

    I've never measured for the angle, I just based it visually.
