Front jk pinion to driveshaft angle

Want to know if 8degree of difference between my front pinion and my driveshaft is a big deal or i shouldn’t worry about that? Going on a long roadtrip saturday and was wondering if im ok i know we shouldn’t really exceed 3 but there’s no significant vibration up to 80mph!

IMO, the more you can point the pinion up the better. The problem is that you will end up with no caster and it will not handle well on the freeway. I see you have an Adams. When you have a question, just call him.

Looks like you're probably running the same shaft I am. I took out a little caster to be safe, but I'm still at like 5 degrees. What is your caster measurement?

Yon can only have an estimated caster with an angle finder. To get the real number you better get an alignment that why i’ve measured the difference between my pinion and driveshaft
