Need some Jeep expert help!!!

Hello all! I need some expert advise. I just did a complete frame up restoration of my 84' CJ7. After 1.5 years of work and 20k+ I'm happy to say that I'm almost done. Here is what I have done: Frame up resto, 5.3 gm with a 4L60e trans and dana 300 trans case, old man emu wrangler springs kit front and back, 1.5 inch body lift, stock dana axles front and back, 33 inch tires. The jeep is running great and looks killer! Here is my issue, cosmetically this things looks awesome but before I start driving it on the road I wanna know if my angles are correct on my rear driveshaft and would like to know that the angles on my front suspension and steering are components are correct. Does anyone know a good resource to find out this info or should I take it to a professional for this.

Thanks everyone,
Jesse

Rear pinion should be pointed directly at the drive shaft if you used a double cardan shaft. If single u-joint then the transfer case output and pinion should be parallel. Same for the front (with a slight compromise for caster.)

For steering, drag link parallel to and same length as the track bar if you used one. if not, whatever doesn't bind is good...
All this is easily found if you search a bit. Use key words like, driveshaft angle, steering geometry, etc.
