You do NOT want to go UP with the pinion... you want to go DOWN. D-O-W-N as in pointed to the ground.
Pinion down sounds so wrong but it is indeed right especially in a leaf spring car when all the angles change a bunch when a load is applied. Didn't believe it when I first heard it. Theoretically the engine and trans run parallel with rear axle under load but the pinion climbs as as you hit the gas.
