I have a 67 Impala SS. Originally It came with a 327, a Turbo 400 and a 12 bolt. When I bought the car many years ago, it had a ZZ502, a 700R4 and rear ladder bars. Thru the years I have done a lot to it Including: Global West front end (control arms & coil overs), Wilwood C3 front disc brake conversion, hydroboost, rebuilt steering gear and getting rid of the ladder bars and going back to the factory F41 susp 4 link rear with sway bar.

Before I did my changes the car barely drove half-assed, with slow, sloppy, wandering steering and braking.

After the changes the car drives pretty well.

In all the work I did and all the time I had the car on the lift, I never looked at or paid attention to the driveline angles. With the 700R4, the factory trans c/mbr is in the rear position with a welded on front extension.

I recently had the trans rebuilt, got the car on my lift to check out how everything looked and for the first time ever noticed the angle of the trans pan. I couldn’t believe my eyes so I got my angle finder & the engine/trans rather than pointing down at the rear are pointing up at 2*? What the hell?

Don’t know what the pinion angle is.

I never drive it on the X-way, so my top speed is usually 60-65 mph, and no vibration issues.

So all that being said, anyone know what the correct angles are supposed to be?
