    You have a 4 link right? How easy is it to adjust? I would get an angle finder and adjust the rear down two degrees and see how it changes. Noises and vibrations are big peeves of mine...

    what did you end up doing? Im looking at setting my angle today probably. I was planning on just eyeballing it....but after reading more about it, I suppose I need to be more mathematical about it...lol

    It was a bad 3rd member like I suspected!!! Moving the pinion has no bearing on noise and the experts besides Moser agreed. Had the 3rd member rebuilt, noise Is gone!

    when you put it on the u-joint cup facing "front" of car"...note reading then rotate it 180 deg....in same place...SHOULD have same reading (kinda calibrating it) I don't do "DIGITAL" anything when measuring but thats just me
