    Are you sure your vibration is not the tranny mounts?

    I'm in the process of setting mine right now. the directions say that the best setting is -2. to get that number you have to put the rear end number with the driveshaft number and it should equal -2.my drive shaft is +1 so that means that I have to set the rear end to -4????

    Hello
    Like mentioned above. We do recommend for the best all around performance is -2 degrees. But to make it easier and less confusing feel free to give me a call and I will be more than glad to explain over the phone. I will be in the office 8am-4:30EST M-F (814) 857-5400 if you have any other questions feel free to ask.
    Thanks
    Brad
