    Help needed in Mission HIlls,
    I need someone find fix my pinion angle and tell me what size driveshafts I need. This is the last part of the rebuilt and after this it's ready to run. I know it's not complicated but I dont want to make a mistake since this is the first time doing it. I dont want to spend more money than I have to in parts. If someone can help me I sure would appreciate it. I dont expect it to get done for free either. I would pay for the help. I can not drive it, it does not have driveshafts. Thanks. Ernesto

    so you need your pinion angle fixed, then you need to know how long of a drive shaft you need? whats the specs on your lift?

    so i'd say you need about 6% shims (is your t-case lowered? if not you may want to do that), and a new drive shaft. Once you get the shims in you can measure from the yoke on the axle to the output of the t-case and that is the measurement the drive shaft shops would need

    If your going with a HAD shaft or any other CV shaft then you don't want to lower your t-case at all. Leave it were it's at and adjust your rear axle to match the angle you need.
