ya that is the perfact angle because it keeps all the needle bearings spining and keeping them from burning up

"Operating angle at any individual joint, must be at least 1/2 degree, and not exceed 3 degrees." This is from a Dana-Spicer bulletin pertaining to light and heavy duty truck drivelines.

The shackles everyone gets are chevy 1/2 ton lowering shackles. Since the chevy shackle brackets are reversed on a ranger they provide lift.
