Pinion Angle ?

I am running sky jacker 4" with 1" tc drop and 1" bl... Recently I have been hearing a knock when starting to reverse my TJ and sometimes when going forward. Thought it could have been a failed u joint but the very back one is like brand new! Thinking it could be my angle, anybody wanna give me an idea of what I should be running both front and rear? Thanks

Why would something abstract like an angle make a noise? There's nothing there to make a noise. Check the control arm ends, sway bar link ends and track bar ends.

And unless you have adjustable arms knowing the proper angle won't help you since you can't change it... Imped is on track with what to do though.
