    I just completed putting on the ORD Shackle Flip kit and it said in the instructions to check the pinion angle with the transfer case and make sure they are within 2 degrees of one another. Where do I go about checking for the correct angles. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

    I am running the ORD kit and had to put a 6deg shim in there to get the right angle. you want the pinion to point slightly lower than at the Tcase. works well on my truck. Mind you that you might have to play with the angles to get it right and keep from having vibrations. I also have tcase drop spacers from super lift.

    Also depends of if you have a CV rear shaft or not.
