What if my Pinion is higher the my trans out put shaft?

The output of my trans shaft is 1" lower than my pinion shaft. Side to side I am exactly parallel so I don't have the 3 d thing going on. Most of the time my driveline geometry has been the opposite. How is this going to effect how I will set my four link and pinion angle? Do I still add the two angles together and adjust my pinion to make 180?

Bob

There are lots of good articles on the web, here is one from Dana.

You can do a search on Google.com on "driveline setup angles" or any like combination and get hundreds of hits.

As far as I know the actual position of the pinion shaft in relation to the trans output shaft won't have any effect on your pinion angles. They should be the same whether the pinion is slightly above or below your trans output shaft.
