    I did the search but couldn't find the post I was looking for. What is the max for degrees between the pinion ant the x-fer case with a straight driveshaft? Thanks

    Thanks, but I'm actually looking for the max difference between the x-fer and the pinion. example: pinion 10*, x-fer 13*, difference of 3* I'm not looking for driveshaft angle. Thanks for the help so far.

    3* difference will live, but vibrate. Shoot for 0-1. Really.

    The exception is with a CV driveshaft.

    at 3* now it barely vibrates. doesn't the pinion have to point at the x-fer for a cv shaft?

    The pinion should point slightly down from the direct line to the transfer case. That should yield no vibrations...
