Rearend set up.......?
On an "A-body" application 4-link set up with tubular adjustable top and bottom bars. What would be my starting point for a drag application. -6degrees? Or only -4degrees? (Because I have only about 440hp. With a 28" tall tire with 4.10gear.)

I would start at -4. Mine did best at -2. Bill.

Driveshaft angle
I also have a rear end question (as this is my first project like this and I have many questions). I, too, have a 4 bar adjustable rear end in my narrowed 9" Ford. From my transmission tail shaft, to my rear end, what is the permissable degree the driveshaft van be without any problems? This car is for street use only. Also, currently, I do not have my body on my chassis and was advised that it should be mounted before a driveshaft is made. That is, do not have the driveshaft made until all the weight is on the chassis. Help Please!!! By the way, here are some pictures of my setup.

Yeah that's true I would have the drive shaft made last due to the fact that the length may change once the full waleight is set on the chassis.
