Thanks Dustin! Your springs and shock weight are spot on being the same I recieved from another experienced XB4 driver. Thus nice seeing another repeating this set up.

I am running a c-diff, thus what would u recommend for diff oil weight.
Your Front 5 and Rear 3 recommendation is spot on with this other fella as well.

Thanks my friend

I'm lost.

I see you quoting what oils and springs you are using, but no mention of piston. That's like ordering a burger, minus the bun.

mmm

I tried using the AE yellow pads on the XB4'13 and they slipped like yours. Then Xray brought out there SLS pads and the stronger spring. Mine is fully undone and I cant get enough slip. Weird.

Did you squash you spring before installing it?

I bought the car second hand, so i don't know for sure, but i didn't.

I might have done it the last time when i tried to compress the spring to the max and broke a piece out of my bearing shell.

I haven't tried the center diff, but i would guess thick 500,000 to mimic the slipper.

Piston 3x1.3
