aosborn According to what I came up with in some of my old installation notes, the rear lower trailing arm is supposed to be 3 degrees down toward the front at ride height. While I believe that is true for a stock setup, in my latest install I raised the frame side of the trailing arm mount so that the lower rear trailing arm is about 3 degrees up toward the front in an effort to reduce some acceleration squat in the rear suspension. The results of the change are inconclusive as I haven't finished dialing in the rear suspension just yet. Not sure where the 30 degrees comes in that you read about, but it could be refering to the angle of the upper trailing arm link at ride height.
