What does the t-case end of the d/s look like? Is there a double cardon, or is it a slip yoke?

Well I had to look up what a double cardon is (that tells you how much I know). It does have s SYE and I guess that looks like a double cardon attached to it.

Your pinion angle is too low...

So I need to lengthen upper control arms right? How big of an 'issue' do I have?

Looks like it. Issue? Not much after you correct it...

Maybe I should rephrase the question? I want to make it proper (trust me I will as I'm a big fan of things being done right) I just would like to know what happens if I don't. The joint lower D/S joint gradually fails? Joints were out faster? Or am I in real danger of some catastrophic 'issue'?

I have lots of thing that i need/want to do so I'm trying to gauge where this falls on the list.

BTW thanks for helping me out.

Yes. Move this to the top of your list of things to fix...

To wrap up this post. I did set pinion to correct. Replaced U-joint while I was at it. I would recommend buying new straps at same time in case they are warn like mine are. I used the floor jack to get it to right angle and reset upper bar length. *** BAD NEWS COMING ***

Pinion angle reset exposed more problems that i've got several post on. Like elongated holes on upper control arm mounts, and blown out lower control bushings. Good news is now I finally know where all me problems are coming
from on the rear end.

JF is my daddy!
