Off Road Unlimited Spring Perches

To get the correct driveshaft angle, I used new spring perches from Off Road Unlimited. After setting the weight on the axle and measuring the possible driveshaft angle I determined that I would need a rear driveshaft with a constant velocity (CV) joint to prevent U-joint binding at full droop. Then I attached a long rod to the pinion and rotated it up just 1 or 2 degrees shy of the center of the output before tacking the spring perches in place.
