i am about to weld my soring perches back on my CJ7 and don't remenber what the angle is supposed to be. it has a 3 inc lift with 1/2 inch drop shackles in the rear and a 3/4 inch transfercase drop if that matters? does anyone know what it is i can't find the degree
 
alright another question, the jeep is currently sitting with that lift plus SOA, will i be able in any way to use the stock driveshafts?
 
I suspect you are talking about the angle of the shackles. The front spring mount (fixed end) of the rear axle should go in the original location. Old Dog gives a good site - Tom Woods, which discusses the drive shaft angle.

The shackle angle should be around 60 deg leaning forward,loaded with the vehicle weight so it doesn't flip over the wrong way. If the shackles you have are longer, that will tilt the pinion/ drive shaft angle.

One effects the other. So measure twice and weld once. :)

I doubt it. I have a 4" lift and my shafts are just bearly long enough.
