rear control arms for 69 chevelle

i have a ford 9 inch rearend for my 69 chevelle i'm getting ready to install . Just wondering if I should get adjustable control arms or just the regular ones for my pinion angle to be right. I have 2 inch drop spindles on the front and ride tech air bags on the rear. Do I need to go with an adjustable constrol arms or not . can anyone help with this? I have 17 inch wheels and tires all the way around

Make life easier

If you have the adjustable arms it makes things a bit easier if you do find you need to tweak the pinion angle..Saying that tho it is best if you can get it as close as possible berfore you weld up your brackets on the new housing..

if you make up a jig taking the locations from the old housing to locate the bracket locations it will make life a lot easier for you..

I know making a jig is a bit of a hassle but the results are so much better that way...

thanks

the brackets are welded on by currie. when I got it in one of the control arm brackets were higher than the other, it was so obvious.when I called currie they didn't know how that could happen because he said its set in a jig. so i mailed pictures and they called me back and said I was right and to return it. They said they were going to build a new one for me and said it would be right this time. hope so


oh and to the other question it's a ford nine inch from currie
