    Alright I am planning to run a homebrew shackle flip in conjunction with my rear springs I have now(give like 1.5" of lift) and a zero rate to get 6" out of the rear. Anyone have an idea what this combo will net me with pinion angle? I know I will probably have to just look at it and order shims or get my zero rates custom cut when I am all said and done but anyone have a fair idea?

    Most shakle flips will point the pinion at the TC. If you don't have a rear CV shaft, there's a good reason to get one.

    Yes it is but one of those costs a pretty penny don't they? And do places make slip yoke CVs? Don't feel like doing a SYE on the 208.

    [/ QUOTE ]I think high angle does a slip joint CV shaft. Don't know the cost but someone else should jump in here.
