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.

I thought I was looking at an Rb6 manual for a sec... Front end looks very similar. Only starts to look different when you get to the tranny parts.

What is the B6 trailing steering set at? 3 or 4 ? I thought I saw in a video it was set at 4 but I cannot find that video, nor is it in the wiki here.

Negative. If you have a b5m with the fox shocks they make a rear tower so you can use them on the b6

Hey rich
I sub to your channel for a long time now and you're a very positive guy when it comes to all of your unboxings and reviews which is great but I'm wondering are there any downfalls you have noticed so far? For example like the quality control etc.
I don't think u built it yet so I'll stay tuned but let us know what you think both good and bad.
Keep the videos coming!

Thanks! Everything looks great so far, but you have seen what I have seen. I'm starting the build tonight. One thing has me worried - if you saw the photos on the blog on my website - the upgrade parts have a totally different labeling system than the old school AE little stickers they put on bags. Almost like the upgrades were added at a different facility. I'm sure it's good, but just different from what I've seen. Also, no wheels. From what I've heard, it looks like AE is putting together s small kit for a lay down tranny for the B6d guys if the traction gets high (on clay especially). That should be out soon.
