We have some rocks here I can exercise it on and see how much travel there is to the rear. The drive shaft was new in 2003. The C were rotated but I don't know how much.
Yep, now that its pointed out, I see that your knuckles seem to have proper orientation.
I would guess that your pinon has been rotated up 10-15 degrees. If I could access photobucket at work, I would post a pic for you of mine that has been rotated up 12 degrees...
Eitherway, that leaves you with quite the desirable axle there!!
