Re: Dangerous wheel shimmy after hitting a large b

Why should he have pinion angle problems? If he had too little caster I could see it may be trying to point the pinion "down" and it would be on the wrong end of the fudge factor of the parallel planes of the yokes. It's a little easier tilting the pinion up 2 degrees. This thing has a CV front shaft doesn't it? Even if it doesn't no power is applied to it at any real speed. Now if the pinion is already pointing at the t-case yoke ..then I could see the issue since it would be sorta the same as pointing a pinion down to get more caster on a normal setup - except now your going the other way too far..

Educate me if I have something wrong here....
