    Does installing ORD HD front shacks commonly result in any kind of pinion angle problem? I know it doesnt lift it much...so common sense tells me that it rarely causes probs...just thought I'd check before I tossed em on there. =)

    I didn't notice any difference. i think thats why they kept them as short as possible, long enough to do the job, but short enough not to cause driveability problems.

    The shackles will tip the pinion angle down by about 1 degree, so it's typically not a problem.
