The ONLY time you want a negative pinion angle is if its a strip car. A four link wouldn't need negative anyway as the pinion angle won't appreciably change during acceleration like it does with leaf springs. For street driving you want to match the trans angle in reverse. Trans 5* down - pinion 4-5* up.
