i'm thinking about puting a stock metric rear end back in my car for one last race this year is anybody running one if so how did you go about setting the pinion angle i have always run a nova rear end in the past so never had to deal with this type housing do you cut them off and move them or drill new holes in the top arms

i suggest about 5 degrees down. That is what some guys in our area are running and works good. The best thing i have found is to cut the upper control arm and shorten it. Don't cut on the housing it is all cast on a metric rearend.
