goin to get pinion angle adjusted in a.m. and could not get a hold of J&M today. Anyone have the instructions on how to adjust. I am sure clockwise/counterclockwise is either + or - or vis-a-versa. I just want to start out in the right direction.

if you have not lowered the car...there's no need to

if so then you want the pinion in the negative (pointing slightly downward)...generally -2 to -4. but i've seen some at zero and -1. i beleive there's already a thread in here with instructions...just do a search, or goggle pinion angle...

just got back from Ford dealer and we could not adjust the angle today. We measured pinion angle to be +1-0. The tech said I should weld my relocation brackets and set the LCAs to mid or low setting before I try to get a -2 pinion angle. We did not even touch the J&M UCA. Now time to get some welding done. Thanks for you help!!
