    I know it's good to have the driveshaft angles one or two degrees apart from one another to negate any axle wrap induced vibes. So, in relation to each other, should the pinion angle be 2 degrees greater or lesser than the t-case angle?

    As far as I know, you should have the pinion angled DOWN 1-2 degrees to negate the effects of axle wrapup under load.
