    -same question for you Mr. Luos -thanks for your time/help
    Felt the car stiffen up, and you do feel the road much more.
    It isn't that bad, but it is more than stock. Some of it depends on the pinion angle you set it at as well. Mine is pretty minimal at -1.5. Thinking I need to actually add a little more preload before I run again.

    With an angle finder.
    I don't remember the exact equation off the top of my head, but you use the angle of the driveshaft and the angle of the rearend.

    -2 is what stock setting is supposed to be. You want to aim for -1 I believe if you lower the car.

    I don't think there is actually a number to 'aim' for.
    More like whatever the car likes.

    If it has wheel hop...too much preload.
    If it spins all the time...not enough.
    You want to find the median for your car.
    Probably want to start at the recommended number and go from there though.

    How do you know if you at the recommended #...

    Say i get my in the mail today I slap it onto the tranny and bolt up the other end to the diff housing. So there are adjustments... are there markings telling me what position I am in; or is it plain guess work on what bolts to extend/retract to adjust the angle?

    Only one fitting adjusts them.
