I dropped into "Truckline", 27 Kewdale Rd, Welshpool, ph: 9353 4288. They specialise in trucks, but do a lot of driveline geometry work. I'll be getting them to build my new driveshaft, hopefully next week. Also mentioned putting solid uni's in too (no grease nipple), supposedly bullet proof, never heard of them, I guess they have sealed roller bearings.
Brenx should try some!
Drive over the pits and they guy has a small handheld electronic spirit level. He measures the angle on the diff pinion and gearbox. Takes 2 minutes. I was surprised how many places don't do these measurements.
* For every 15mm you raise/lower your crossmember you'll change the front uni angle by 1 degree.
I'll check the sump clearance tomorrow.
