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.

You can use them, but same way as if you were to use a B5 AE diff, you have to put shims on the out drives. That's all.

I have one question, imagine someone buy a B6d, and all necessary parts to convert it to laydow as an option to use when racing in high grip tracks. Will I need 2 bodys?. Maybe I am wrong, but if you cut your body to fit in a B6d trans, when you change to laydown trans it will not be covered by anything because the part of the body to cover the spur and pinnion has been already cutted.

This means we will need two bodys depending what trans we use.

I found it funny because I thought I was the last guy still running 4 gear on the B5M.

Not exactly, in the B5M you can cut your body to use both trans with only 1 body, but in the B6D, if you cut it, when you install the laydown trans, the spur will not be protected by the body itself, so it will be outside the body and with no cover.

You're right; and then it's probably illegal...

I agree, probably illegal.
And two bodies needed in this case.

A little bit of deduction based reasoning tells me that the b5m ball and gear diff will work perfect in the b6...can anyone prove me wrong?
The B6 diffs are 2mm wider (1mm per side). The new part number for the gear diff includes the needed spacers so you can run the B5 series gear diff in the B6. They are just using the rear axle spacers they made for when using the +4 C/D mounts on the B5. The small spacers are not needed.
