Question Pinnion angle?

What is the correct pinion angle for the rear drive shaft on an '04 rubicon with a 4" lift?

Don't do anything about this until you read your other thread about the vibration. Don't want to get ahead of ourselves.

The correct pinion angle is about 2-3 degrees lower than the driveshaft angle. You have a CV shaft, so the pinion should be pointed at the transfer case to eliminate vibrations. The reason that you set it to 2 degrees lower than the transfer case is that the pinion will rotate up under load.

If you have to ask what it is or what it does, you don't need it, and you will need help to install it!
