    I now have my 4BTA installed with a NV-4500 and married NP-205 T case. I want to get my drive shaft angles correct.
    The rear differential is up 7 degrees at the pinion. I have set the rear output of the NP-205 to 7 degrees down. The drive sghaft angle is 12.5 degrees. From what I know, standard U joints should work fine.

    My concern is that with the rear output of the NP-205 set at 7 degrees down, the front shaft output is 7 degrees up.
    And the front diff is 9 degrees up. The front output of the NP-205 has a flange for a CV joint with a U joint at the diff. I understand that a CV joint will handle angles of 20 to 24 degrees. My front shaft will be at 18 degrees.

    I need a sanity check, does this all sound OK, or what am I missing or what should I do different. This is my first Total repower, new tranny, new T case.

    Thanks
    Paul
