    Quick tech questions for you, and this probably leads back to your trailing arm installation. Since all of those devices are length adjustable, did you find a need to go to the alignment shop afterward to check for square? Or is it generally close enough not to matter in the grand scheme?

    I enjoyed the video (and your others)! Thanks for the insight!

    Love the video. Very easy for a noob to follow. What Id love to see you guys do, is possibly in the description portion of your videos, to put amazon links to the specialty tools needed for a whatever install. You obviously have gone through your share of tools and it seems that it would help people pick the correct stuff in a sea of crap (like the yoke puller, inch torque wrench, brass hammer, etc). I for one would find it very helpful and the bonus would be knowing Im helping you guys a little bit using your affiliate links.

    Trailing arms? You mean control arms? If so, no, I don't waste my time with alignment shops.

    Please give my first post a closer look. You'll see that most of what I have listed is in bold and linked to Amazon.

    Cool and informative video! Really interesting although I will hopefully) never have to do this. One tech question: I thought, that tcase output and pinion input have to be parallel to avoid vibrations on your driveline. Now you set pinion and ds parallel, which angle does the tcase have?....I am really wondering right now, maybe I am braindead at the moment

    The only time you need to keep the output shaft and pinion shaft parallel to each other is if you're using a standard shaft with a single u-joint on both ends. We installed a rear driveshaft with a double cardan and it requires you to have the pinion in line with it.

    Yep, that's what I meant. Terminology challenged Thanks for that.

    To be fair, when it comes to IFS/IRS, I would use an alignment shop for for a Jeep with solid axles, it really isn't rocket science to do your own alignment and really, it can only be done IF you have adjustable components.
