    Does anyone know what the pinion angle should be on a 10 Bolt GM Axle? I put on extended shackles and would like to get my pinion angle and castor back to factory specs.

    Don't really know offhand, but if you're wanting to separate the pinion angle from the castor angle (cut knuckles off) you should just aim the pinion at the driveshaft, that's the technically correct way to run the ujoint at the pinion.
    Otherwise I would set castor angle and leave pinion angle alone. Castor generally needs to be about 6 degrees.
