UCA Adjustment problem

Good afternoon,

Ok, I installed my BMR UCA and Adjustable mount. Initial set up was set to the same length as the stock UCA and the hole closest to the mounting plate was used on the mount. After the install I took the measurements. As recommended by many I used the bottom edge of the pinion flange and back driveshaft close to the mounting flange. The numbers I came up with were +3 on the pinion and +3.5 on the driveshaft. I loosened the lock nuts and made the adjustments. The best I could do was to get the pinion angle to 0. This leaves me short of the recommended settings of -2. Any suggestions of what I may have missed or what I can do to get it closer.

I'm lowered with Roush springs and I loaded the rear suspension when I measured.


Thanks.

I don't see how you could get +3.5 on the driveshaft. It's already pointing negatively (downward). Check your measurements.

Ok, that's what I'm missing. When I reviewed the videos they were doing the measurements standing on the driver's side. I did mine on the passenger side. When I compared the direction of the needle I didn't realize it's actually backwards from their orientation. So, you are correct. Mine is at -3.5. So, now the problem is potentially too much negative angle.
