Well my car is together and all is working good, Im having second thoughts about my pinion angle setting. Our ruls dont allow for altered rear control arms (coil car).. I moved my mounts when I welded them on my 9". They came out at 10-11 degrees of pinion angle. It seemed to hook up good at the track. had reall good forward bite. Is this angle going to tear joints out of my rear or am I ok. thanks

I don't feel that is too much. If the car is working good, leave it alone.

We run a '78 Monte Carlo fitted with a Ford 9" and we have our pinion angle set at 9 degrees.From what I know you are in the ballpark.

Just a follow up:
The 10-11 degrees is working great for me. No u-joint problems.
Thanks for the input guys..
