Well, I am forced to cross-post this question. Need help picking a pinion angle. I am at the stage where my 8.8 axle is ready for brackets. I have a set picked out, but I am still trying to figure the pinion angle I need. I did the string test whereby I ran a piece of string from the center of my existing axle to roughly the end of the tcase output shaft. I measured that angle at a scant 7 degrees or so. Does that sound correct? This is about half of the lowest angle I've read others going with. However, I am only running a 2.5" suspension lift and 33's. I'm going to add adjustable upper and lower control arms plus a SYE and Tom Woods shaft. Is my paltry lift the reason I seem to need such a shallow angle?
