We present measurements of the $Z\gamma$* rapidity and $\phi$* production distributions and the weak mixing angle from $Z$ boson decays, with all RunII data collected by the D0 detector at the Fermilab Tevatron Collider. The measurement of $\phi*$ probes the same physical effects as the $Z/\gamma$* boson transverse momentum, but is less susceptible to the effects of experimental resolution and efficiency. Both $\phi$* and rapidity are measured with unprecedented precision. The effective weak mixing angle is extracted from the forward-backward charge asymmetry distribution as a function of dielectron invariant mass around the $Z$ pole. The measured value of the weak mixing angle is the most precise from light quark interactions, and comparable to the best LEP and SLD results.
