Here is some info I put in another forum entry a while ago.........

Maybe I can help with some of the angles and measurements. I have a 86 vette with the Dana 44. Here are some angles/measurements (at least as to how it pertains to being installed in my stock vette).

The car has been sitting on a fairly level garage floor for about 4 days without moving so I assume it is pretty well settled.

Centerline of outside of rims to ground 12-1/4" measured at a width of 68" (this gives you a reference point).

Bottom of differential case to ground 8-3/4" measured at rear of case on center line.

Half shafts pointing down toward outside 4 degrees.

Frame mounting brackets pointing back at 66 degrees. This could even be 67 since it looks like the floor slopes to the rear of the car about 4/10 of a degree in 4 feet.

Top arm pivot point on bracket 16-3/4" centerline of bolt to ground

Bottom arm pivot point on bracket 13-1/8" centerline to ground

Spring hangs down about 2.7 degrees toward outside

All measurements done with a tape measure and a Craftsman 8" digital level.

just an update here to close out my issue.

i ended up lowering the diff, which helped a ton and then also when to an adjustable rod for the dog bones. So far with my limited test runs, it seems to have solved the issue and the car feels silky smooth

everything was off the shelf components from rodendsupply.com and came within a day or two. If anyone wants to know the details, let me know
