    have a shackle flip in the rear and didnt correct the pinion angle so u joints wore out fast. my question is about how many degrees off was your pinion angle after the shackle flip? measured mine and is off about 8 degrees. does that sound right?

    Yep that is about where mine is. I have not done anything to mine since I put new springs in. I only get vibes when I am coasting around 65-75MPH
