    Does anybody have any recommendations for a shop in the North Jersey area to check the driveshaft angle in my 70 Challenger?

    I used to use a Driveshaft/Universal joint shop on Rt 17S in Rutherford
    Did a lot of business with them back in my mechanic days.
    They have been in business for
    50 years. They may be able to help you? Always a 5 star review
    they know their stuff.

    Thanks, I had my driveshaft balanced and new universals installed there. I call them this morning and they don't check drivetrain angles. He suggested a 4 wheel drive shop or someone who does lift kits.....

    You should be able to check it using the level feature on a smart phone

    This shop works on cars and has experience on truck driveshafts w lift kits. Could be helpful in solving your issue. They are in Clifton on RT 46.

    Angle meter with a magnetic base. Remove the Pinion snubber if it has one, and mount it on the flat portion were the snubber mounts. There’s your driveline angle.

    I went there today. Talked to Mike. As soon as he catches up with current projects he'll get to me.

    Finally got my car in at HP Motors. It was a long wait but I'm sure it will be better than new when Mike is done with it! Thanks for the tip, Mike is a great guy....
