Front yoke angles-SPOA

Hi Zooknuts-
I have questions:- (a) concerning unequal angles of the t-case output flange and the diff. input flange on the front axle of my 86 Sami with SPOA.
I would like to know of any easy tricks to reducing this angular difference and still maintaining some useful castor angle. The installation to my Sami was by the PO, the spring perches are welded to the axle tube. I haven't had the castor angle checked but the vehicle has a safety inspection certificate for road use so I assume that the castor angle may be OK. The steering wheel "centers" easily enough.
(b)- I'd like to know more about the larger flanges that I've noticed in postings to this list- will they fit earlier Samis like mine without changing the t-case and tranny and if so- how much bigger in diameter are the driveshafts that that they take?
Thanks, AJM Vancouver, Can.

I'd be very surprised if your inpectors went so far as to check castor on your vehicle.

What you want is for your welded spring pads to be exactly level with your factory spring pads under the axle. Exactly parallel! No matter what your suspension configuration.
