    You should set the pinion angle with everything the way it will be when going down the road. I take it you moved spring perches and are putting on new ones?

    I just did the same thing. I sat everything in place, with the weight of the K5 on it, and used a straight edge to line up the angle by eye. I set it up for a CV shaft though, so it wasn't too hard.
