You have to change the pinion a bit...up or down,


If you don't it will kill the ujoint at the pinion, it relys on that offset to spin the bearings in the joint.

Someone will pop in here and say one or the other is wrong. It doesnt have to be drastic.

The old dodge cars had the rear end offset to the side to get this effect.

Think about that question.

Are the traction bars going to change the fact that the ubolts are a fixed, hard mount for the axle to the leaf springs?
