Yes, the Tq arm relocation has probably 6-8 different postions for it to connect the tq arm bushing to. I have it mounted in the same place my 12 bolt was. I didnt get anything accomplished today... had zero ambition to do anything. I did measure a few things.
Balancer was angled back towards the rear of the car I think 4*. I have probably 125 pounds in the drivers seat. It seems my driveshaft and the pinion are canceling each other out. -4 + (+4). Get it handled tomorrow.

Alright, Now I have the rear end at -8 and th driveshaft at +6. It seems this rear end is poking down alot! I guess im comparing it to when my rear was at 0*
This has to be right? I have measured many times.
At some point the rear end pinion angle is going to keep decreasing and the driveshaft is going to stop increasing, correct?

I think we gotta forget about the + / - factor a minute... Lets just use the term up or down... I'm guessing that your drive shaft now is 6 down & the pinion is 8 down. I'm coming up with 14* down. Bring it back up until you get your 2* down.
I guess I'm reading it different than others, but your jumping from each side of the zero and assuming the one is + ... I think you just want to count the lines total / down...
Just got it confirmed, + is up & - is down...

Thanks Bill, the talk was very helpful! Track tomorrow if the test drive goes good, and then hopefully I can finally use these MT and 9"!

I havnt driven over 20mph so i dont know if its making noise ywt. Gonna play with the angle tomorrow. NEed some advise on a STOCK rearend and how to do it. I guess you gotta do it with the suspenstion loaded. WE have a drive on lift so that now that big of a deal. RIght now i think my Pinion is at 0 and my DS is at 8. Guessing that -8. DOnt know. HELP!!
