How to find pinion angle? 5.3LS into a '37 chevy


I'm installing a 5.3 LS from a 2003 Silverado into a 1937 Chevrolet 4 door. I'm using a Ford 8.8 rear end from a 1999 Explorer. I have the rear end mocked up and bolted in but I have yet to tack in the perches because I don't know how to properly find the correct pinion angle. My engine and transmission are bolted in.

Could someone explain to me how to find my pinion angle. I don't want to end up with vibrations. This will be our family car (my wife's daily driver) and we intend to keep it forever (as long as we live anyway), so I want to make sure it's set up as close to perfect as possible.

Thank you,
