I got it on my car It seemed to throw my Pinion angle of I think with the stock TA. I got an adj TA that should be here tomorrow ill let you know how it does after I get that on. I really like how it took the TA off the transmission tho.

Im pretty sure it threw mine off after lowering it and all with this. I get vibration 80 and over that was not there b4. Most people that get this get a TA also though.

The kit doesn't relocate the positioning of the T/A. It merely moves where it mounts, while keeping it in the same location. It shouldn't have effected your pinion angle at all. If anything, the added vibration is due to your T/A being mounted onto your chassis. You no longer have the rubber isolation offered by the transmission mount.

Im sure it lowers the position just a little. The vibration is not from it being chassis mounted it gets really bad and I didnt notice it at all before. Its a great piece Im not saying thats even the reason cause I changed other things at the time also.

I have the t/a and relocation kit on the way, but plan on installing them at the same time. It does seem the relo kit moves the mount down some. With a stock t/a it could mess with the pinion angle. I'll take before and after pics, if anyone wants.
