pinion question??
When setting the rear driveline angle how far can you angle the differential pinion up before you risk losing lubrication to the front pinion bearing?

IIRC, somewhere between 18-22*.

I just overfill my pumpkin slightly which compensates for it being tilted for its raised pinion angle. :)

^yep, and jacking up the rear axle as hi as you can when you fill it helps to offset the angle to get enough fluid in there. i think some of the aftermarket covers have higher fill plugs, or make your own.
