Use the small thrust balls (like you were building a diff) and then put a little lock tight on the diff screw. The spool pads take the place of the diff balls in the diff pulley. Then you should be all set.

How do you fix the front CVD from shudder besides turning the rate down.
I have my steering rate set at about 65% on the TX.
Blue springs front sliver rear and 40wt all round.
Basically am wanting more steering.

try running a shorter front link and dont dial up more dual rate or you will have to much of a slip angle and chatter the cvds.It is always better to get more steering from a suspension geometry change not by dialing in more steering.

hope it helps

Yeahyeah- one thing that helps quite a bit is if you glue a shim ( the one from the lower roll center to space out ) on the steering block so it hits the caster block. you won't loose steering throw, but it will help a lot with the chatter. I usually use the thin one

Your thoughts on this?

Thanks....
Im not sure why some people say to use the thrust balls when building it. That doesn't make sense to me. For me I just used the old TC3 styule t-nut (the white one) with blue loctite and it holds very well.

The reason we started adding the diff balls is so the 2 diff halves are isolated.
If you hit something on the power and one side slips it can twist the screw and this results in the loosening. With thrust balls installed the slip force isn't transfered to the diff screw.

The sheet didnt say where to put the rear ball stud and shim.....either that or I missed it.

Does anyone know if these are the same lock nuts used in the TC5 diff?

I didn't see the AE # but if it is a 2-56 aluminum lock nut it will work for the TC5 diff.

Not true, it depends on how big the hex is on the lock nut. The TC5 hex nut is really small compared to a typical 2-56 lock nut.

Actually it is true. I'm running those exact lock nuts. They are TC3 locknuts and fit perfect. PN ASC3904.
