Skip the carbide and go ceramic , they they will never wear out .
That saves you lots of money.

so was a little confused about the aluminum shock mounts. ive heard you need short ones and regular ones. and ive heard one or the other...so i emailed team ae and this was the response i recieved...

"Thank you for contacting customer support. You will want to get the standard ones all the way around. You will also need #91447. These are the shock bushings."

so there is your answer if you have the same question i did

narrower tuning range, because the balls bite less.

I dont know anything about those, but they are a good price. while your at it, might as well get his 2mm ones for the thrust.

Who ever told you that has misinform.
They also say carbide performs better but the facts are ...

No differences in performance , big savings on never having to repurchase diff balls for each rebuild.

My latest rebuild of my diff I went to ceramics. I have to say that I'm a convert. It wasn't any harder to dial in exactly the right amount of tension for the diff. Seemed as easy. I did go slow but never missed my target and had to back off or the other way around. If they do last, then I will keep using them going forward.

My first set of Ae ceramics ?

Purchase them for my B4 two years ago..

They went to my C4 ...

I just stole them from the C4 & installed in a Gt2 now.

Dang , my Gt2 has never had a smoother diff....

Can't wear the ceramic out ..

so there is your answer if you have the same question i did
When I spoke to AE they told me short bushings for the MM regular length for RM. However the stock bushings that come with the mm and rm are the same, so I am not sure why they suggested the short for the aluminum.

ended up ordering 3 sets of ceramic balls from acer racing - $6.99 for 14. can't beat that.

With all of this diff talk.... the outdrives should be totally fine, right? not really a way those can get damaged except on the outside of em?

The tall shock mounts can be used on both ends of the car for B5 or B5M.
They are the same as the kit shock bushings

The short mounts are intended only for the rear of the B5M. They line the shock up a little better than the tall one. No big deal really just a little better shock angle.

So, I upgraded my bearings to the new AE blue ones, but still having issues with my front left bearings going bad and not being able to tighten the wheel down to far so it can still spin. I've tried a new crush tube, but still the same issue. Any suggestions?
