    O.K. here is the deal I installed a six inch lift, my drive shaft angle was to steep in the rear (vibe over 55) so i used the spacers on the tranny brace and lowered it an inch aprox. fixed the problem. but I still had saggy arse in the rear. added add-a-leaf raised the rear 2" now vibe is back. can I lower some more to fix???? I was thinking longer bolts and some shock spacers. any ideas or fixes for this would be appreciated! thanks

    <font color="green"> Some shims to correct the pinion angle would be a better way to go, IMHO.</font color>

    The only correct way you are going to get both the working angle and the pinion angle correct is to install a C/V driveshaft. This is a common problem with short wheel base vehicles and lifts.

    Look up Jesse at www.highangledriveline.com He can hook you up with a rear C/V shaft. I am guessing somewhere in the neighborhood of about 450.00
