just thought id say that i started doing mine today, but i fucked up:o

i done one and when using the big drill bits it sorta walked around a bit if ya know what i mean and now the hole is only about 5/16" back when it was supposed to be 1/2" back but i didn't realize this until i was drilling a 3/8" hole on the other hanger so now ill have to finish the second hanger off with a die grinder to get it the same as the other

not really a big problem but luckily i noticed the hole position looked a little different and stopped, i probably could have just not worried about it but i am a bit of a perfectionist so i want it done right

looking at the hanger, it just makes sense.

you cant really go straight up, nor forward. also, moving it back reduces any pressure the driveshaft may put on the transmission rear seal

All right I see it, need to keep some travel on the front spline.

so the correct spot to redrill the holes would be 2" up and 1/2" back?
i did it to my last nissan but this was 5 years ago.

I dont know if this is a stupid question or not but is redrilling it going to move the wheel backward any? or is it just arching the spring and reliveing pressure on the tranny?

yes, it moves the wheel backwards about 1/2"

not enough to notice or worry about. and enough to relieve the pressure the driveshaft can put on the rear seal of the transmission for you guys rocking 6" drops in the rear.

i am considering doing this and the only question i have is other than the wheel going back a half inch and the pinion angle changing a little is there anything else that could change and possibly get damaged or worn out.

is it a good idea to redrill them on just like a 3-4" drop? or would it only need to be done on something like 5-6"? Thanks.
