View Full Version : Pinion angle

06-23-2005, 11:21 PM
Ok, I've been studying the pinion angle threads and I'm still confused. My measurements are:
drivetrain angle pointing 1.4 degrees down (measured by bottom of oil pan)
rear end pointing 2.2 degrees down (measured across face of rear end housing perpendicular to ground
So is my pinion angle -3.6 degrees?

Some more measurements that may or may not have any bearing:

driveshaft is 3.1 degrees down towards rear of car
ground sloping 0.3 degrees towards rear of car

My post made absolutely no sense after re-reading it and I managed to confuse myself so I deleted it. Hopefully someone that knows will chime in and help us both.

"....lets see...1 deg down + 3 deg down equals...no that doesnt look right....scratches head... :dunno: "
