    i just welded up the perches on my 14 bolt... i measured and got all my angles corect. i think it made sense to me at least. but i rolled my axle up 2 degrees but it looks like alot more than 2 but its only 2 degrees. i am plannin on using a cv style shaft i have 56 inch springs 6 inches of lift 6 in shackles and a 2 1/2 flip. will those 2 degrees end up benefiting me because of how he suspension will flex.. will the pinion on the axle end up rolling down and creat better angles or just screw me and ill have to use shims becaUse i screwed up.

    You are supposed to put it 2 degrees down, because when you roll forward, the axle tends to react by rolling backward thus lifting the front of it up about 2 degrees on most springs. More with softer springs.

    if you're using a cv style shaft (assuming CV at the tcase output) the pinion should point directly at the tcase output, or a degree or two down from it, at rideheight.
