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.

B5M: 3inx2.06in=3inx52.324mm
B6: 3inx48mm

One would probably work on the other in a pinch, but for reference, they are of different lengths.

I think by standard, he was implying standard big bore springs (i.e from the B4.2/B5 buggies).
The link he posted shows big bores. All the same part numbers as shown in the B6 manual.

Go to or get in touch with SDRC. They said on facebook they could ship to someone inquiring.

If somebody really needs one I can spare one of mine. I just can't ship for free. I've got one of my rentals on the market and until it sells I'm on hiatus anyway.

Anyone in Socal going with the B6 for SDRC and OCRC? I kind of like the thought of the gear diff after running onroad for a bit. Seems like for 17.5 it would be a benefit anyway but then again i have never run them of road in anything but 4wd.

Gear diffs and 17.5 do not mix. Those things are HEAVY.

Wenger right now is KILLING it in 17.5 with the D car at OCRC.
