TCI 4-link suspension for 47 - 53 Chevy Truck?

Has anybody out there used TCI's 4-link suspension on a 47 - 53 Chevy Truck 3100? Curious if anyone has run into the same issue that I have? The parallel link bars installed on the truck frame sitting at a 2 degree rake (ride height) are angled down 3 degrees from the frame bracket to the axle bracket. I have it from a pretty good source that the link bars should be level/parallel to the ground. This much angle could cause some bucking on acceleration. TCI tech support says 3 degree angle is okay. My guy says not okay. Anyone with any thoughts or experience on this?
