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.

so far I am liking it from what I am seeing, I need to still give mine the good ol full teardown and rebuild since its used (however, looks very good) but happy so far.

Mine came with those Kashima or whatever they are called shocks and the stock bodies still, anyone point keeping the stock bodies around (like say, certain, conditions, etc)?

spares? tuning (pre build shock packages), they have very little resale value....

I would say NO resale value. So Cain, just send them to me so I can do as Untamed Kitty said and build a spare set of shocks for testing.

Ok so I got the lunsford motor screws for my laydown. The only thing is that the driver rubs against the side rail when I try to screw the bottom screw. Anyone else have this issue? I guess it's because the lunsford screws have a 2.5mm hex. And I guess the only fix is to dremmel down a bit of the side rail.

Anyone using the anti roll bars? Suggestions on which to use for carpet? There's 3 different ones for the front and rear. Thank you.

EDIT: NVM. I see it really depends on the track itself.

Started to build my B6 today and now when i started to build the
diff the manuals says "Add a drop of Diff Lube (#6591)" i have looked in the box but cant find it?

Should it be included in the kit? Or can i use the included Black Grease instead or some other grease?

In the B6D kit, the clear diff lube should be included in a small tube the same size as the one for the black grease. I expect that the B6 kit with the gear diff may not come with the diff lube. If it is just calling for the drop of diff lube for the transmission gears the black grease will be okay.

Ok thanks for fast answer, i have checked every bag and itīs not there so it looks like the clear diff lube isnt included in the B6 kit only B6D is it because the geardiff doesnīt need any lube on the gears?

The internal diff gears will be lubricated by the diff oil, and yes you can still lubricate the outer gear of the diff (with a dab of grease, or if you get the diff lube).
