Default Double cardon angle

I have a xj front shaft shortened on the rear of my yj. How steep of an angle is acceptable? Trying to do a tummy tuck and its at about 25 deg but the tcase output shaft is pointed down about 7 deg. So the angle of double cardon is 18 at ride height, is that ok?

Hang your rear at full droop,and spin the shaft. If it dont bind, run it. Most of them will bind around 28-30 degrees. Also, sometimes when you do a tummy tuck, it is good to run a 1" motor mount lift, this will help the angle some also.

The problem is the motor trans and t case are hanging in jeep from cherry picker so I can't do full droop. I have it done now and my motor is up higher than normal. Not sure how high over stock since I'm working with bare frame and making my own mounts.
