Default Belltech 6400's bad for pinion?

Hey y'all,

Today I went to go order some Belltech 6400's so I can do the prekey & shackles mod. The parts guy told me that I'd be unduly stressing my pinion by doing it and would hurt my differential and cost me thousands to fix, blah blah blah, and of course now he's got me scared, and I didn't buy the shackles after all.

I had a look on here and found an older thread where someone mentioned the pinion angle does change, but by how much and is it safe? Is there a way you can correct it?

I plan to do my spindle lift next year and now I'm afraid I'll be making some strange geometry underneath my truck once everything is on. I guess I could go AAL's and blocks to level things out in the back but I don't want to stiffen the ride/wrap the axle.

The Block and AAL isnt a bad idea, but the shacles wont hurt your dif if you get to extreme it can but with the belltech your not going that extreme you will be safe. What a shackle does is lifts the rear and in most cases gives the axle more of a arch to swing at.
