Hello Gents

i know this is another pinion thread but i need some help setting the pinion on my car. I have a 69 camaro caltrac/leaf spring car with a big block,4 speed and im trying to set the pinion angle on the new rearend. i know i gotta be in the -2* to -5* range. the problem im having is that the car is on jack stands and want to set the pinion with the rearend hanging. i cant put it on the groung because i dont have the wheels and tires yet and wanted to know what to set the rear pinion angle with the rearend hanging. is this possible? and what should i set it at?


Thanks

Jacksstands under the axle would simulate it being on the ground and get you close... I would think anyway.

w/leafs,caltracs pinion angle wont change enuff to be noticeable whether hanging or sitting as long as the car is on level ground -2 should be -2.
at least my NOVA didnt change.
