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.)
How will raising the car increase the angle of your trans output shaft? Unless you only raise the front.That's what I was addressing.
As far as rear pinion angle goes. On a parralel 4-link there are many factors to take into consideration, but if your bars are less than 36", there will be a change on a 6" stroke like you might find with a bagged setup.
