Pinion Angle With One Piece Driveshaft


ZEROED
 Share

Recommended Posts

I am installing a Shaftmasters one piece drive shaft in my 2007 GT-500. The suspension and ride height are stock.

 

Will my pinion angle be OK, or should it be checked and possibly adjusted. If it should be checked , and possibly adjusted, where and what tool do I purchase to make this measurement.

 

How would I adjust the pinion angle, if needed?

 

I should have asked this question before removing the OEM DS.

 

Thanks.

Your pinion angle should be just fine. My car is lowered and I have no issues with my PST 1 piece carbon shaft. You could also inquire with shaftmasters to verify.

A one piece does not require pinion angle adjustment. I read it here on the web so it must be true....

I also read on the web that if you think that the gap between the fender/body and the tire is too much then you should just put on some taller tires to close up the gap.

With the rear CV joint on a 1-pc, it's not nearly as important or critical as with a standard cross & bearing U-joint.

 

I adjusted mine to near zero but I have spherical/hiem joints on my trailing arms and third link so I get a minimum of nose climb from the pinion to compensate for.
