Pinion Angle

Im starting a spring over conversion, and putting in an 8.8
I understand that I should also go with a SYE and a new drive shaft, does this have to be done at this time or can it still be driven?

What is the best way to determine the pinion angle since I still have the stock setup?

I was thinking that I can set the axle in and rotate it to where the new SYE will be and then complete the axle welding.

Im guessing that I should wait and not install the new axle untill I do the SYE? I would like to have it complete before I continue so that I only have one proget going at a time.

Re: Pinion Angle

You should do the SYE first, then accomplish the spring over. Unless you are planning on a CV shaft, you'll want to match the angle of the t-case output. If the output points down five degrees, point the pinion up five degrees. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

If you do a search for "Pinion Angle" going back for a year or so... you will be reading for some time but you will have the answer several times over.
