Switch the rear springs around and that should help with the bite. Eddie

Forward bite is when you lay down the gas and it takes off,the less tire"spin"the more forward bite you have.At least thats what it means around this part of the woods.lol

If your buck toothed, then you have forward bite too.

Pinion angle helps with the forward bite, just keep that u-joint greased!

No actually it doesent. It just wears out the u-joint faster. The changes you make to get more pinion angle may help, shortening the uppers or moving mounting points, may help with forward bite but pinion angle by it self wont help.
