    ok I have a 14 Bolt I"m fixing to go move the spring perches on. I'm planning on doing a shakle flip when I install this, should I adjust the mounts at all or just go back to the stock angle?

    i kept mine stock angle due to the fact that once the flip is done it put me right at 2 degrees, dosent get any better than that! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif the flip will raise the pinion in the front so remember that, unless you will have more than 4" you woulndt want to do that. it'll be fine.

    I,m just about ready to re-weld my pearchs on and will go with the stock rotation...but I think we all have a little diff. angle on the drive shafts so fitting and finding the right angle just takes assembly...this is what I'm using for the pearches...
