3 degrees from what? Level? In-line with the T-case output?

Are you going to run a CV rear shaft? If so, you'll want the pinion a degree or two below being pointed directly at the t-case (zero angle in the joint at the pinion)... under load, it'll be pointed about straight at the output on the transfer case.

If you're not running a CV shaft, you want to try and get the angle at either end of the shaft to be equal. (The bend down at the t-case is equal to the bend UP at the diff).
