Marco- I'll have him throw another set in if you want to ship some in my order, that'll save you some coin.

6 degree shims seem like what I had before.

Drew, I used either 5 or 6 degree, I can't remember anymore. 4" lift springs and 1" longer shackles. I used one of those magnet angle finders to figure out the DS and pinion angles and then tried to get my pinions close to 0 or -1 degree.

That'd be cool! Let me measure them and I'll let ya know what they are. I *think* they are 6 degrees.

I too went more for my pinion angle than anything else... I could tip the axle back a little bit mor to go for more caster but I went more for the pinion angle.

as far as my pinion goes, I have it more or less pointed at the t-case (a few degrees down) and am running a double cardan front shaft. smooth as silk even at 70mph.

If you want I could cruise by sometime and help you noodle over it..
