Pics of pinion angle. Question

How much do you guys/gals think I will gain in up travel when my pinion angle is corrected with adjustable uppers? I have reordered the SYE for the 3rd time now and adjustable uppers. Any Idears?









In the last picture at the top of the shock there is right around 2inch of up travel. (Not good for a smoother ride)

If you haven't gotten more out of the insurance company than you deserve, then you haven't screwed them nearly as much as they have been screwing you for the past xx years.

dave you smokin again lol. When I rotate the pinion up the shocks will get more up travel due to the axle rotating under the truck. Meaning I might not have to change them. So the question was how much will it rotate with adjustable uppers? 3in? 4in?

you weren't real specific about the shocks. not enough to make those shocks work.

when you get your sye, you don't wanna go jackin up that rear pinion like we have to w/ yj's i don't think.... maybe a tj guy can chime in, but its better to not have to do that, you don't wanna go changing the angle the springs and control arms are at i don't think.

I know from what I have researched that you want for the SYE the pinion to be pointing at the sye output. So that would be like 25 degrees up into the air from where it is at now.

you are correct with that statement but the rotation of the axle will not give you any noticeable change in shock travel. to continue using those shocks you need more lift.

With as much as you are going to move that pinion you might gain about a half inch or so of your up travel back. But honestly like I've told you on the phone like 3 times now....Go to dave's cut them off and move them and weld them back on. Problem solved.
