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.

Here is a laugh, I test many times in AMain shopping cart what they really have in my wishlist to pull the trigger on an order of items. When trying to herd a bunch of small parts together and deciding when to order before waiting again.


Anyways pic below of B6 kits. 100 in the shopping cart and there is 61 in stock officially, LOL

I don't know about B6 but on the B5 the ball diff and gear diff were basically the same.
Actually weighed B5 gear and ball diffs, gear diff 2g lighter than ball diff.
