  • pinion angle

    Does someone make angled shims to improve the rear pinion angle?

    Yup, standard old everyday caster shims. Make sure you get steel ones and bolt them into your spring pack like you would another leaf or a zero rate. Most front end shops will have them.

      I think DIY4X4 has them too.

        Finally getting to this project. Can someone tell me what the proper pinion angle should be at the rear? I've taken some measurements, but not sure what the final # of degrees should be. I know it should not be zero.

          Keep in mind Duke, when you set the pinion angle, you will need to have the full weight of the vehicle on the wheels. The pinion angle chaanges on spring compression.

          That's exactly what I was looking for caveman, thank you. The video helps a lot also. Thanks for posting both. Mel, this follows the procedure you were telling me about.
