Pinion angle?

I just lowered my truck and I was goin to set the pinion angle at -2 degree. Is that a good setting or do I need to go lower or higher?

Pinion angle?

have you checked the actual angle? my friend has an f-150 with a 3/5 drop, i can find out what shims we put in his truck i cant remember, but it really helped alot, you will notice the difference, if you are getting a vibration right now, with the shims it will go away, plus it is alot easier on the rearend.

Well I have a slight vibration at full throttle. It's not bad but I am about to weld the spring perches and I want to get set right. I used a flip kit and it's easy to adjust. I geuss I will adjust it until it's smooth.

-2? I hope you don't mean in the angle of a mountain, if you get my analogy.
