transfercase and pinion angles

i was crawling around under my suzuki yesterday and noticed that the transfercase isnt paralell to the frame/ground it is about 10 degrees tilted torwards the back <font color="red"> it was this way before and after the new mount </font color> so if the rear out of the transfercase is 10dregrees then the pinion should be parell with the transfercase flange like this(\\) but the front unless the pinion is pointing down below horizonal then it will be setting like this (\/) is this possiably why everyone has front driveline vibes mine isnt bad but this is just a thought <font color="red"> and i am shure the transfercase arm isnt bent </font color>

Re: transfercase and pinion angles

Yeah the transfercase angle does point down twards the rear in a stock configuration, so your arm is not bent. I noticed this also when I did my spoa pads.

Most people wont get bad driveline vibes from the front, unless they are baja-style speeding in 4wd on a very smooth surface.

I would try a single cv shaft in the front if you are getting bad front d/l vibes.

And your also right on the 'matching angles'...I think the rear is far more important to align.
