Pinion angle adjustment questions and wishful thinking

OK so I have slight vibes under acceleration in 1st and 2nd gear. I have no other vibes other than take off. I have 97 4.0 with the AX-15, 3 inch suspension, 1 inch body and motor mount lift. 8.8 inch rear end with a SYE installed.

Pinion is 16 degrees and drive shaft is 11. (measured the way Stu's link said to)

I am saving for my adj. control arms and tummy tuck, my question is how much should I expect to adjust to correct?

I am debating a t case drop until I can come up with the money for the TT, but I hate the thought of lowering it. It already looks like a bag of ass with the factory skid under there.

Any chance the tummy tuck could be done without the control arms since the pinion is already on the high side and I would be raising the d/s to the TT? I know its unlikely but it sure would be nice to get out on the cheap for once

As far as the adj. control arms go, are there any that will allow for adj. on the Jeep? I have the Currie Correctlync and I am leaning towards the Currie arms, any others I should look at?

Thanks for the help.

Savvy arms are adjustable while on your rig.
