    If your driveshaft has alot of angle you put a cv joint on the yoke of the tcase and you can rotate the axle to the proper angle. But what is going on with the axle lubrication is it good or bad. Would it be better to put a second cv to the axle or this is not an option.

    Lubricating the pinion bearings properly is the biggest concern. Tilting the axle lowers the plug on the axle cover, so unless you remedy the situation the oil capacity is less. At what point it would cause a problem I don't know.

    you are right i never thought about the fill plug and that the oil capacity would be less. Then can i use a cv for the axle yoke
