We are installing a 9" in our camaro and need to know what angle to set the pinion.
Thanks for all the help.

You'll probably get a lot of responses to this, but 5 degrees down is common.

I agree 5 degrees is good. Also being in the tranny business I have found to little pinion angle can cause the driveshaft to pull the bushing out of the tranny tailhousing!
