Well to adjust the pinion angle you need to unbolt the upper passenger side link off the rear end and then take the driveshaft off to put your angle finder on and then adjust the upper left one till you get the angle you want then thread the pass. link in/out so it matches up with the bracket and slide the bolt in.........im not sure that the air bag is necessary since your uppers are adjustable.....that passenger side link can be tightend about an 1/8-1/4inch once you bolt it back in to add pre load the suspension but that really wouldnt have to do with it hookin just no launching straight............are you running stock shocks or adjustables? transfering the weight is important... does the car squat when you launch? if its squating its unloading the tires and they are spinning...idk if they make any bolt on adjustible mounting brackets or not but if they do that would help with changing the instant center and keeping it from squating.........i hope im sending you in the right direction....im new to the suspension stuff but im sure someone will chime in and correct me
