Replacing Rear Upper Control Arm Mounts

Here is what was behind the upper control arm:

Both sides are like this. Since I'm not comfortable doing this fix, I brought it to a body shop. They are going to replace the rusty sections with 1/8" steel. I ordered a couple of these, since they are cheaper than getting some fabricated:

The question is: what is the pinion angle supposed to be?

That is exactly what is goin on with mine. Let me know how that turns out. And the pinion angle should be parallel with the t-case output shaft if you have a stock driveshaft and slip yoke. If you have a DC shaft it should point at the t-case.
