I just installed a 12 bolt in my 64. I always have heard that you have to set the angle of the rear end when you put in a newrear. Is this true and if so hjow do you do it? Any help yould be great.

Thanks

If you are using the stock links there is no adjustment. If you want to adjust it you need adjustable uppers or something like SSM bars. Just typed in some tips in the brake section under pinion angles a few minutes ago.

When I purchased my adjustable rear end set up from Hotchkis in the instructions they had an article from a magazine giving a good explanation about pinion angle set up.

I will see if I can find out where the article was from and do a search on the web to find it and post it here.
