Driveline w/ angle pig question? How to fix

I have lowering blocks, (only 1/2 of one used to get my angle right, I thought) But when I started it up and try to put it in gear sounded funny. Tried reverse, neutral drive etc. really didn't go in real good (automatic Lokar) shut it off and I looked , my yoke came out of course because My perches angles back about 45 degrees ointurn pulled yoke ot that much and it sheared off my lowering block knob to go into my perch. I am thinking I have the wrong angle but how can I fix this the easiest way? I do have shackles. Advise big time! Thanks, Dana

If the yoke came out of the transmission ... you had a too short driveshaft IMHO. I always push the yoke all the way in and then pull it out about 3/4" to one inch. Thats where the yoke should run with the proper length driveshaft.

You can purchase angled shims ... to correct the angle on the pinion.

Summit sells them ... if you do not have a local speed shop.
