    whats your pinion angle set at?

    My new umi adj. TA came in today,my first question is what is everyones set to that is lowered on a full length transmission mount. I know stock is -2 but I was thinking maybe - 3 for more bite. 2nd question is on koni adj. Which way is soft? The directions don't tell me soft from hard. I want my rears full soft and my front ones somewhere in the middle.

    An M6 will result in more driveline shock and movement than an A4 and the recommended down angle is a bit greater. On our A4 car, I believe I set it to -1.5 degrees. Here is the thread that details it: Pinion Angle

    So an angle closer to 0 is better?

    The car is going to the performance shop in a few weeks to have all my goodies installed,I guess ill have them do what's best. I was just curious to see what everyone else is set at.
