    How close can the two angles [in degrees] be or do they have to be exact? I am piecing together a 6 inch lift. It is not store bought complete lift. It is the rear i am refering to. Any help would be great. Thanks:confused:

    1 to 2* difference is general. You of course reach a point where the u joint will be bound up if the transfer case isn't pointed down and the pinion pointed up.
