Sorry if this is covered elsewhere, I'm getting alot of conflicting info. I'm building a 1 ton coiled F-250 on 39.5" Rocker's. On my front driveline I'm going to try and run a clearanced 1330 CV, if it doesn't hold up I'll be giving Jesse a call for a 1350 one. My current concern is the front U-joint angle and caster.

Should I run good caster and leave the front U-joint at 11 degrees at ride? Or go for 2 degrees and do a cut-and-turn? If I don't turn the C's I'll be at 22 degrees on the DL at ride and under 30 degrees at full droop with 11 degrees at the diff. If I turn the c's I can pick up a few inches of droop.

Will the clearanced 1330's live in the front on a trail rig with occasional street use? No crazy rock crawling in AK but some of our trails are tough and 100+ miles from a parts store.

My build: http://www.alaska4x4network.com/showthread.php?t=30369

Thanks

Sorry about the link, lost a number in the cut and paste.

I was really leaning toward the corect pinion then cut-and-turn path until Jesse at HAD said not to worry about it. That threw me off so I started asking around. If I had more time at work in the morning I'd give him a call, by the time my schedule clears you guys have gone home for the day.

I appreciate the comments.
