correct but the ae diff rebuild comes with zero diff balls. so he would need to buy them if he felt he needed too.

still feel the bfast diff kit is the best value since it comes with caged thrust as well.

b5m kit comes with carbide diff balls and steel thrust balls. planning on flipping the rings or getting new ones ($2) and new thrust balls ($2). Hopefully, will get several rebuilds out of carbide balls before having to replace. Will also get new thrust washers or flip.

anyone know if we can order just the thrust washers? do not see a part number for them. if not, wonder what the size is to purchase at a hardware store.

I normally flip the trusts and leave the thrust balls in. Unless you manage to flat spot the balls. Which I have not. I have been getting super smooth diffs with the kit rings. When the diff gets crunch, I just flip both the diff and thrust rings and rebrake it in. After the flip, I replace them the next time. So dont run crazy tight diffs, so my diffs last a while.

I dont think anyone sells just the thrust washers. Also, the TLR ones fit. I doubt a hardware store will have anything that small.

Oh not, I am cheaper. Some guy gave me his old thrust washers. He only used one side, so I flipped them and put them in my kids 22..... She now has a smooth diff. Before the trust swap out, it was beyond bad. Also, it there was a big race an no one had what I wanted. This guy upgraded to the avid thrust and gave me his old washer

Sand your old Thrust washers down with 400 - 600 grit. No need to replace, its easier than sanding the diff rings. I am the cheapest A$$.
