      69 Camaro Ridetech 4 link pinion angle help

      69 Camaro

      I need help with finding my pinion angle. I don’t think setting my pinion to 3 degree like ridetech said, is going to do.

      All 4 wheels are on the ground, using floor jacks to hold it at the ride height I want. I am doing the adding/subtracting way of setting my pinion angle. With that being said, what should my pinion angle be with the following information:

      slip yoke angle -4.5
      drive shaft +.8
      Pinion -4.6

      On the Tremec app, I inputed the above angles into the app and got the result:

      Angle 1 - 4.4 (Red)
      angle 2 - 3.6 (red)
      operating angle - .8 (green)

      Do I have to worry about the angles in the reds?

      What engine/trans mount are you using? I have the Holley stuff and it gave me a 3.0 angle?

      Motor side mount are eBay ICT and the frame mounts, I donít know the brand. On the tranny crossmember, itís a G-Force brand.


      On my post, I had did my math wrong. I was adding instead of subtracting my slip yoke angle from the driveshaft angle.


      New angles:
      Slip yoke - 4.5 degree
      DS + .8 degree
      Pinion -4.6 degree


      operation 1 ó -4.5 - .8 = -5.3. (Slip yoke to DS)


      Operation 2 ó -4.6 - .8 = -5.4 (pinion to DS)


      I believe I need to shim my tranny to try to get it to -3.5 degree and bring my pinion to 3 degree or under. For sure, I need to bring my DS from + to -


      If I can achieve these angles
      Slip yoke -3.5
      DS -1 (or under)
      Pinion -3 (or under)


      Iím be in the greens accordingly to tremec app.
