The flatter the better. The more angle it has, the more the axle will move sideways when the springs are compressed.

Scott,

Your trac bar needs to be running at the same angle as your drag link or you will have a bunch of bump steer. If you Drag link from the steering box to the knuckle is 15 your tracbar has to be 15.

The less angle the better. BTW the trac bar has to attach to the frame at the drivers side and attach to the axle on the pass.

HTH

Yeah it is a black diamond, I was just fucking with it. I was having a problem with the driveline hitting the tranny when the drive wheel is stuffed and the pass is at full drop. So I was swapping the trac arm to the passenger side frame and to the axle on the driver side, When I cycle the suspension now the driveline is cherry, but is oposite of my drag link, so I guess I'm fucked now? I wondered why the where always the other way. So now what should i do? I'm tring to make this 2" shaft work that had made, because they said a 1 1/4 won't hold up? any thoughts?

The Drag Link is Level, so will it matter if the trac arm comes from the pass frame???

If you draglink is almost level it shouldnt have much noticeable bump steer on the road, and I don't think it will bother you on the trail. Only time it would be a bother is high speed with lots of suspension action.
