Pinion angle and lift kit Question
I am ordering my 2.5" springs for my CJ-7 soon and was pondering the reason that all lift kits seem to come with degree wedges attached to the rear springs. I know this is to "correct" pinion angle on the lifted Jeep, but if the rear pinion and t-case yoke are supposed to be parallel to each other, and you are lifting the Jeep straight up, dont they remain parallel? If so, why the degree wedges? If not, then ...well...why not?
This isn't an emergency question, just an engineering one that I cant figure out. Thanks! (I know this is going to be a simple one and I'm gonna' look realy stupid, so please no flames...OK...please.)
