Drive Shaft Angle?

I run a 350 to a sm645 with a 3" adapter to a dana 300 on a 84 CJ7. I recently installed a set of 4" bds springs. Ran into a problem with my back driveshaft angle so I extended the frame 10", cut the wheels wells and pushed the axle back. Drive shaft angle is about 27 degrees right now. There is a CV in the driveshaft as well. Is 27 degrees too much? I don't want to lower engine and tranny, oil pan is level with bottom frame rails right now. I could push the axle back another 8"(18" total) and knock the angle down to 22 degrees. Whats everyone think?
