I was wondering if I am OK running the below angles on my driveline. I'm going to install a Dana 44 soon and will gain a half inch or so more yoke on my Transfer case tail shaft. If I'm right I am 1 degree off. By the looks of this picture is that negative or positive ? Does it look as though I will have problems is what I really would like to know. Currently no vibes.
I also have 2 added inches of bumpstop so I don't snap off the tailshaft when the springs flatten out.

Thanks for any advise !

I'll go get a quick figure Shane. I'm using the protractor string method so it'll be the angle of the shaft with out the Pinion and TC equated into it.
I'll have to try and find a pretty level spot at work to park it first.
Be back soon !

Ok assuming it was actually level ground, it read 16 degrees.

That means your Ujoints are at the following angles..

Upper 10.5*
Lower 9.5*

If it doesnt have any vibes id run it!

If you put a CV on it, Rotate your pinion up ~5-6* from what it is now.

Cool that is the answer I was looking for. I'm not going any higher for awhile. I'm stuffing 34s with out any flare or body rubbing and minimal wheel well rub, so I'm pretty happy where I'm at. See yuh Soon !
