10.25 Sterling max pinion angle?

With the new lift and DS I'll need to add about 6* to the stock angle....whats the max a Sterling is good for before oil will not reach the pinion bearing, this is a street truck.

Thanks, Cary

Mine is 14* above my driveline. IIRC my driveline is about 3-4*, so it's pushing 20* total. I have not overfilled any more than I can stick through the stock fill hole. I regeared it after ~75k original miles plus 38k under my Dakota and it looked just about brand new. Pinion bearings all nice and new looking.

I'd love to hear input from anyone else on this. Hope I'm not dredging too much at a month old - looking for yoke info on the pig, and will probably end up posting shortly.
