    The sharpie test is good. I would think another test is to just sit the taper into the reamed location and measure deflection on each end. A little hard to do with ball joints though. I wonder if there is a tool that can measure to a tenth of a degree.

    It is difficult to measure the taper for sure. With the length of the tapered portion of the stud, measuring the stud diameter incorrectly by as little as 0.17mm throws off the whole taper measurement by a whole (1) degree.
