    hi, I'm thinking about getting a cv driveline made for my blazer.
    after I put on my 4" ord shackle flip it set up my pinion angle perfect for a cv.

    It's around 16* will that fry my pinion bearing from lack of lubrication, it's a 10 bolt by the way. I want it to last a long time.
    I would also like to add 1" zero rate so I will have 5" total lift
    It will mostly be driven on the street

    Mine is coming up on 2 years in February with a flip , around 5 inches of lift total ( echobit kit ) . I have no problems with mine . The fluid whips around when ya roll forward , plus when ya brake , due to inertia , the fluid goes right up into the pinion area anyway :D

    Yeah, I wouldnt worry about it either. You fill it up and the oil doesnt have that many places to go, its going to get oiled. If you worried about it that much, overfill it a little.
