Re: pinion angle help after lowering (W/drawing)

The 200r4 is probably 1" difference from centreline of output shaft to the trans mount surface compared to a TH-400. I had to shim mine up an extra inch, but my swap was a ST-300 not a TH-400.

Might want to check that.

You never updated us after you shimmed rear-end (at least I don't c it). Did it solve your 2013 issue? Only asking because I'm dealing with same. Thanks!
