Adjustable upper control arm pinion angle?

What should the pinion angle be set at for factory height?

I don't think so. If your stock height you should not need relocation brackets

Ok cool. Was watching bmr's video on the adjustment UCA. Looks like +2 degrees for poly bushing unit. Sound right?

Check anyhow. I'm doing all of my suspension tomorrow and can post updates. Recommended 2-3 negative for manual and 1-2 negative for auto.

I will be 1.5" in the rear. Will use upper mount hole and adjust to -2, manual here.

Also doing relocators, LCAs, panhard. Will be having the relocators welded in after about 100 miles of light driving so things can settle. Another 100 after that for an alignment to let the springs settle in.
