    Setting Pinion Angle

    I've seen the desired pinion angle expressed in two different ways for an '01 T/A; either as (-2) degrees or (+2) degrees. I'm assuming that we want the pinion at an inclined position (tilted upward) in relationship to the drive shaft. Is this correct? And, is this referred to as a (+) of (-) angle?

    no, you want the pinion to be downward from the driveshaft. that would be in the negative arragement. that way, when you accelerate, the pinion tries to climb up the ring gear. this will make for a 0* angle when accelerating.
