Do you have any pictures of your front pinion angle?
Not yet and my front ds is still off. I'm guessing my starter should still be replaced?

I mean, I have heard them locking up like that when they are hot. If it does it again, I would replace.

You can still snap a picture of your diff and yoke, Id like to see the angle it is at. But, it is not going to be as good as with the DS on there...

Need more lift in the rear. As it sits with a full tank of gas. Front is 20.5 and rear is 20.5 hub to fender. Throw the trailer on there and pulls the front up to 21 and sags the rear down to about 20. I am thinking of putting another 3/4 inch spacer in the rear. OME gave me 1.5 inches over stock (keep in mind so-so iso's) then adding the 0.75 inch spacer gave me around 2.25 inches, then another will put me at 3 inches of lift and 21 hub measurement. No, I am not going to stack them either, I will put one on the frame and on the axle. I figured if I can find a cheap rear 3/4 spacer, that would be less expensive then buying isolators? haha. My main concern is that I want to keep the front end DOWN as much as possible. Any other ideas? Oh, there is only about 100 pounds tongue empty and probably 200-250 at the most when loaded with whatever. I was thinking air bags as an option but ehhh.

I think you're way over-thinking this. Don't double-space the rear to give you the best stance while towing with 200lbs tongue weight. Would you double up spacers just because you had a passenger in the back seat?

Just deal with it. Vehicles squat down with a trailer. Squatting 1/2 inch is nothing.

Oh, ive been know to way over think things and i dount doubt that haha.

I just dont like how the rear end is lower while there isnt a trailer on it. Its just bugging me and ive probably lost my marbles.

Actually, If I add another spacer. It will give me my factory 1 inch rake back. (when not towing) and that is what I want. So when I do two, it will take that inch and sit level.

Ehh whatever you like. I'm not a fan of the rake effect because I don't want my jeep to look like a minivan. To each his own.

With nothing on it, it will sit almost level. So the 3/4 in the rear will just be a tad bit more in the rear and will give me the rake back. Which, will make me happy AND give me enough lift to run the IRO rear a-arm
