Default Pinion angles

Alright I am going to do an axle swap and I was wondering about the pinion angle. Right now I am doing the rear but plan on doing the front (Where the pinion angle prolly will matter more) but I was wondering how most of u guys would go about setting the pinion angle and what tools u use for it. I have 'lil more that 5'' suspension in back so thought while I have to relocate the perches I should probably point the pinion up a bit, but just a lil confused on how much and how to measure it info is appreciated thanks guys. Oh yeah and I was wondering where u can buy POR-15.

If you have a CV joint on the tcase end then point the pig right at it. If you just have single ujoints on both ends you should try to make the angles match as close as possible to help avoid vibrations.
