need lots of help and advice

iam building a jeep thats on a YJ frame YJ springs scout dana 44's and 258/t 176/D300. now my questions are angles in the rear. iam going spring over, now, what should the diff angle be? and the driveshaft angle? and the trick is that i hav a drive shaft the is in my current sprung over jeep that is brand new but there is no double cardan in it and i would like to use it because i dont whant to spend the cash for another one.
any help will be muchly apreciated and any tech articles of people doing this kinda of thing (spring over on a cj) would be great. iam getting kinda stuck here so any help would be great

Re: need lots of help and advice

The best way to go about doing what you want to do is to do it twice. What you need to do is get everything ready. And install the axels... but when you do, don't have the spring perches welded on yet. Once you get the axels on there, rotate them until you have them where you want them. Once you are happy with the way they are sitting mark the axel and spring perch, take them apart, weld the spring perchs on, then put it back together.
That really is the only way to get the results you want. Because every Jeep is different the angle that works for someone else, may not work for you.
