    I just put new leaf springs on a couple of months ago and have gone through 3 u joints I am being told that the pinuon angle is to much. The sprins only made my back end set up an inch or two higher than level. The question is how do I get ride of the angle and the other is will it hurt to take out some of the leafs from the pack.

    You need to fill out your profile. What year is your K5, is it lifted? Any mods? We need to know these things before we can help...

    Maybe shim it up or down which ever directtion you need to go. Or go with a cv style drive shaft. I would not pull out any leafs. Espeically if you are wheeling hard.
