    I was just looking at my pinion angle and I noticed that it doesn't seem right. Is the wedge on the rear springs supposed to be pointing towards the front or rear, or to describe it easier, is the fat part supposed to be in the front or back? Thanks for the help! /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    fat at the front, so that it raises the front part of the diff so it points up towards the t case

    ummm no actually the fat part goes in the rear. think bout it. when u tighten the u bolts, ut brings the front of the diff up, aiming it towards the x-case
