need advice on pinion angle for 8.8 swap
Hello All-

I am going to swap my Dana 35 with a ford 8.8 and need some advice on the pinion angle. I am going to do a SYE and CV shaft. I have read that if you plan to do a CV shaft to point the pinion dirrectly at the transfer case as opposed to parallel like stock or with a standard shaft. A few of the ones I have seen done online keep the pinion like stock. Any advice???

Some additional info:
92 YJ 4.0L
4" rough country lift
plan to swap my 33s for 35s
I would prefer to do a SOA but will most likely keep the spring under the axle due to the labor invoved in the front...

Mine is about 6 degrees the pinion points just to the bottom of the bolt or yolk on the transfer case this is so under load the pinion points at the yolk on the t case
Hope I helped rubicon express sells
The degree shims
