Pinion angle

I have 3" AEV coil springs on the way along with adj currie control arms. I have been doing a lot of reading to make sure I get a good idea of what all I need to do when I install the lift.

One question I have:

I know how to adjust the pinion angle, but how do I know when it is adjusted to where it should be?

Thanks!

Do you have a SYE on your transfer case?

No, I don't. But that is something I am planning on doing in the future when I have the funds.

Did you read through it, and do you mean Slip yoke? You need a CV shaft, and a SYE before you adjust the pinion angle. Without the two you would need a transfer case drop, and/or a MML.
