with SYE how do you adjust pinion on WJ?

This Question is purely academic for me at this time cause I am not going to do this to my WJ in the foreseeable future, but... I have a ton of experience with leaf spring vehicles but on these coil rigs, if you put in a SYE and a constant velocity drive shaft, how do you adjust the pinion angle without readjusting the axle spring pad? On leaf setups you can shim the perch. Is there a similar shim for coils?

You only have so far you can go before you need to cut and weld. You adjust by control arm length.

The driveline is plenty long enough that you shouldn't run into seating problems with the springs though. Most don't need an sye because of the same reason.
'97 zj 5.2, some stuff, some other suff, and some things that even work sometimes.
