It's all up to you. They all work.
But personally I like to run the same gears and pins in all 3 diffs

I agree as my friend as that makes sense. Thus I got order some more graphite gear sets. Do the graphite gears require any special shimming or are is it pretty much straight across the boards.

Thanks again

Anybody liking the progressive springs? I ran them for a day but went back to 2 dot/1 dot, seemed to feel a bit better to me. I may experiment again though.

I was looking at that chart too but it doesn't look like there is a happy medium for the tlr/team associated springs....unless I'm looking at the chart wrong

To covert the Xray 'dot' into a more typical spring rate in Lbs., multiply the "c" rating of the spring by 5.71.

So, a rear spring is a 1 dot, or c=.35, so .35x5.71=1.99! That's 2lbs. TLR yellow. Boom. Or go to the chart about and pick your favourite manufacturer and get their equivalent to 2lbs. I run TLR LF springs in the back, which is white. Up front I run Xray 2 dot.
