Everyone has talked about pinion angle but what is the maximum angle that the driveshaft should be? My shaft used to be almost level but when I installed my glide I had to shim the engine up because the trans would hit the frame X. Now the driveshaft has some angle. I think it is fine but what would be max?

It doesn't matter what angle the driveshaft is at.It is the angles of the u-joints in the front yoke and the pinion yoke you have to watch. Look at the angles of the driveshafts in 4x4's as an example.
