What do Axle shims do?
Similarly, you may ask, does lowering a car change pinion angle?
Yes, lowering the rear suspension changes your pinion angle and affects how your LCAs respond (squat) under hard acceleration.
Additionally, how do you set pinion depth? Pinion Depth – The distance from the face of the pinion gear to the centerline of the ring gear. This is adjusted by adding or subtracting shims to the inner pinion bearing. 2. Pinion Bearing Preload-The preload applied to the pinion bearings when the pinion nut is tightened.
Similarly, it is asked, how do you adjust driveline angles?
Place a spirit level protractor on the driveshaft about halfway between the transmission and the Differential. Read and record the angle shown on the protractor scale and note whether the driveshaft points up or down at the front. Record the angle as “3 degrees up” or “2 degrees down,”etc.
How do you check a driveshaft pinion angle?
Using a gravity angle gauge (Available at hardware stores) to measure the angle between the driveshaft and the ground & the pinion flange and the ground.
- Hold the gauge on the bottom of the driveshaft.
- Next, hold the side of the gauge against the front of the pinion flange (beside the driveshaft).
