    Is it alright to mill zero rates at like a 3* angle or so to turn my pinion up a few degrees? I am having driveshaft issues with only 5" of lift...

    Also, where can you go to get this done? I went to a few machine shops around here and they all said no.

    thanks

    Can't see why not if it's only a few degrees. You'll have to 'slot' the bolt hole slightly too though.
    No...forget the 'slotting' bit! Talking without thinking again! sorry. :D

    No problem. We may start offering it as part of a 52" spring swap package. Longer shackles and tapered leaves that way you get 5.5" of lift out of the swap.
