    I am looking for some advice on setting the pinion angle on my 75 c10, with a 5/7 static drop. I'm new to the site, and at 62 yo, I need help

    Need to know what joint your new shaft uses, your combo could have had two different sizes depending on what truck it came from. The chart posted at the top will tell you, if you are able to measure your u-joints.

    If the rear end is a 10 bolt, it's not original either. 74's had the 12 bolt rear axles.
