Hi ratpin. I guess you are addressing my comment in post 15 where I said "then raising (or jacking up) the vehicle will increase those angles, but they will still remain the same and opposite."

I agree that raising or lowering the chassis will pull the axle closer or away to the output shaft of the trans, but since the 4 links are a parallelogram I don't think the pinion angle would change. (If I am wrong I would like to know why; aways willing to learn.)
