Alignment to Weld Spring Perches
« on: January 11, 2019, 02:25:28 AM »
I have a 68 Camaro 10 Bolt Rear End that is out of my car. I cut off the mono leaf spring perches and am going to install multi leaf spring perches. I also found the attached diagrams in Forums.

I set the rear end differential cover surface to 90 degrees using an App on my IPhone. Then I snugged up the U bolts to set the spring perch angle down 6 degrees (or up 6 degrees if the rear end is up side down).

If this seems correct, my question is that the one diagram shows the spring perches angled in slightly yielding 88 degrees instead of 90 degrees. The spring perches I purchased don't move at an angle therefore they end up at 90 degrees.

Does anybody know if this is a problem or doesn't it matter?

Thank you for your help.
