If the trans is parallel, then the pinion gear needs to be parallel too. 2 different angles cause vibe issues. I did SOA rear with Metric Tonne springs and the D35 so far. If I changed anything, I would tilt the pinion at the tcase and go with a double cardan (double Ujoint) shaft. Cardan goes to the trans end. Might require a high angle shaft. Mine has been fine for 3 years level to level with new joints (old joints will self destruct in no time)
