    Ok with a non CV shaft the pinion should point where? I thought it was directly at the output of the T-case (0* angle at the pinion yoke) I was told yesterday though the angles should be the same at each end /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif Please help me fix my vibrations /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    edit: I'll try and get a picture of my angles tonight

    your pinion should only be pointing right at the t-case if you have a cv shaft and since you dont your pinion angle has to be parallel with the output on the t-case, example if the out put at the t-case is say 20*, the driveshaft is say 10* then the pinion should be 20* NOT 10* like it would be if you had a cv shaft.Let me know if you have any questions.
