You MUST glue the inserts in.

Q: I just bought the aluminum rear hubs. Which sway do I mount them?
A: B5M = etching to the rear. B5R = etching to the front

It's not but for me, I rarely use that adjustment. I keep a spare set thats unglued if I need to make use of that adjustment. It totally removes the slop when you glue them in.

yeah, people glue in a set of 3mm and 4mm into 2 different sets of hubs. they swap them out ass needed. AE tried to save us money with the inserts, but solid parts might have been better.

I got my kit about 2 months ago, and I don't have issues with the trailing inserts. In fact, I have a hard time getting them out of the steering knuckle (have to use a pick and force them out). Maybe there was a running change?

Are you using a B4 swaybar kit.

No the swaybar kit they make for the B5M #91468

Hard parts do not require the inserts to be glued. I have ran hard parts (stock arms) for months now without a single failure. Have broke 1 front and 1 rear arm so far though.
