Oh. That doesn't help.

The IRO instructions tell you where to weld based on degrees off the pinion. Literally took me an hour to line it up and my buddy burnt it in. Bolted right up.

And yes it will vary depending if you run an SYE or regular shaft. But again you should be able to adjust it enough to work. Sounds like this truss is a pain lol I didn't have any of these issues. Maybe I just got lucky I'm to dumb to realize it could have been an issue lol

Actually the truss is very simple,my only issue was figguring out the pinion angle,it was more of a question than anything.they are not very clear on pinion angles.

Here's my take. I haven't read the last two pages but I'm in the same boatim doing a double triangulated rear and I plan on setting my truss and coil buckets half way in between the 2 joint pinion angle and the double cardan angle. This way I'm not dealing with banana shaped coils and goofy angles. Also I spoke with a friend that has had troubles with advance adapters QC and recommened against their sye kit
