Default Rear Pinion Angle- Lend me your eyeballs!

Im trying to set my pinion angle but dont have any angle finders or measuring tools to check it accurately. So hows this look to you guys? Ive swapped my diff but its the same lift and components except new adjustable UCAs. Was running factory uppers before without any noticeable issues so I figure any improvement has got to be better than it was right? I stupidly forgot to measure or take pics of how it sat before I started pulling it all apart.

The is a couple of free apps that turn your smart phone into a inclinometer capable of measuring the pinion angle

I wouldnt be too concerned..... a full tank of fuel, gear in the back, extra passengers, or a bigger than stock spare hanging off the back will all make a difference to laden weight and how it sits on the springs at rest and whilst driving, and hence tailshaft to pinion alignment.
Line of sight is fine.
However, having the pinion set too high can sometimes give oil starvation issues and premature pinion wear, unless its a high pinion diff.
