Are you going to lower your caror ever install a 1-piece driveshaft ?

If answer is no then you do not need adjustable LCAs.

I've heard that not all 1 piece driveshafts require adjustment of pinion angles.

My car isn't lowered and I can tell you for sure that the 4" Shaftmasters does not change the pinion angle. Dave from Shaftmasters took measurements off my car and the pinion angle was dead on. He asked me to measure it so he could confirm on another forum where someone said it changed the angle.

The D/S doesn't change the pinion angle...lowering the car changes the angle but the 1 piece does notbend to account for the pinion change like the stock D/S does. You need adj. upper to change the pinion angle.
