You won't get an accurate pinion angle measurement with the suspension hanging down. You need the full weight on the suspension. The pinion should point up 4 degrees if the engine/transmission is at stock configeration. The level shows the angle in the correct direction but the axle housing needs to be supported by jack stands to measure the 4 degrees.
I don't know if CCI sells the CPP rear brakes, but if those are Cadillac calipers, the E-brake is not adjusted correctly. CPP has a newer write-up, from their original, on how to adjust the Cadillac calipers and it's pretty critical and confusing.
