I was out wrenching on it when you clarified for me however Im currently at 7* pinion and 5.5-6 on the tc the way its set the Axle is set back a bit further but Im ok with it for now. Do you think the drive shaft yoke being out .5" more than stock is going to cause any issues?

If your happy that is all that counts.

But for general info....Unless IRO cut the threaded stub length more than necessary to keep the threaded stub from bottoming out on the gusset plate like it does in picture 1 above the nut is captured on the inside as well. It is trapped by the gusset plate once you screw the adjustment in where it should go with 3 or 4" of lift. If you think about it, one way or the other the adjustment can not turn or unscrew even if the lock nut loosens. So it is quite possible you are worrying about a non issue.

Yes...IRO may have whined about it but they figured out I was correct about having to bottom out the adjustment at 4" of lift. To accomplish that IRO modified the stub so the nut to can be moved to the inside. They should change their advertising and the picture on their web site and alert people to this fact. But then they would be admitting the adjustment is useless with lifts up to around 5 or 6" unless you buy adjustable LCAs.

i had to flip my nut to the inside so i could get the pinion angle spot on. the A arm is actually a little long for a 3" lift. my bushings on the body side are twisted just a bit at ride height.

You mean the rear drive shaft yoke? 1/2" shouldn't be a problem. I had an XJ that I ran that way for 5 years with no issues.
