question on j bar. Heim at pinion placement? What is angle on j bar when set. If measuring in inches, is the measurement from the center of each heim or is it the measurement off of level?

Just some J-bar basic starting points:

Mount the j-bar on the rearend with the heim level with the center of the pinion, or just a little below center.

Mount the frame side heim about 4 inches higher than the pinion heim, uphill to the left. If you measure from the center of each heim to the ground, it will give you the difference in mounting heights. The car doesn't care what shape the bar is, (j-bar or straight) it just sees the difference at the heims.

The angle is dependent on the length of the bar.
