Charts for Quick reference:

















1) put inner bearing in hub
2) slide large shim over axle all the way up to the back of the axle
3) slide axle/bone into hub carrier
4) slide small shim onto axle through hub carrier
5) push outter bearing into hub carrier

using that i'm able to put my normal male silverback gorilla wheel nut tightening job and there's no binding. in the pictures that come with the shims (the pic socket posted) it seems like they want you to slide both shims onto the axle before sliding the axle into the hub carrier and like i said, that doesn't work.



I've traditionally done the diff screw head on the left side (driver's side), but have since switched to the Right side (passenger side) regardless of transmission type (3 gear RM vs 3 gear MM and 4 gear MM).

Kdub (Kurt Wenger, former AE designer) had this to say on the matter:

The right rear is the way the AE manuals state (or used to state). It really shouldn't matter since you go around turns both left and right.

No, you're just moving them in further not up or down.

Shocks are squeeky. Sounds like air. Even after bleeding.

Those clay setups using the Yokomo Green rear spring. Is it YOKYS-A1200? I've also heard people using the Yatabe Arena YAS-1050 which is also a green as well. The Yatabe is shorter by just a tad.

The 1200 is the spring used on the dirt setups.

Read the insert that comes with the hubs. It's all stated there.
