Rear drive shaft angle question

What's up. So I've been sitting on this Samurai for a while. I'm taking out the rear shaft to either remake or balance the one I have. My question is in regards to the angle of the drive shaft. Right now the bottom flange is pointed probably 1 to 2 degrees downwards.

Should the rear diff point directly at the tcase, level to the ground or down a couple degrees towards the earth? I'd post images but I'm under 10 posts. Thanks.

Okay so based on that I should be fine because I'm using a conventional setup. Now I'll just see if I can balance it myself or get one made.

Thanks

What kind of range is the double cardon good for to 'fix' the pinion angle?
