Ok maybe I'm being totally dense here and these setups probably make perfect sense to others but I'm confused. Lets look at the front... to get the hinge pin level (3racing blocks) I have to raise the front about 1.25mm. No spacer in the back. So on a setup sheet if someone says to raise both blocks say 1.5mm are the arms level? On mine the front of the pin would be lower than the back.

Personally ive never had problems with the diff screw. I had one snap once in a pro 4 but that was only because my mate said to tighten i up to the max because we were on carpet and i didnt have a spool.

There are two different thoughts with regards to the diff screw.
The first is to get an Asoociated diff screw which is some fat a$$ diff screw.
The second one and i think this is to help with the snapping problem but not sure (but ive always done it since i saw it and ive been running mod/19T) is to pop a shim in under the head of the diff screw when you build it.

Having said that im terrible with rebuilding diffs and only do it every few months or when the car suddenly is undrivable. When i rebuild the diff i usually just put in new diff rings (ive got about 20 sets of diff rings at home that i keep meaning to sand back) and replace the diff screw if it looks like its got some scoring on it, youll know what i mean if you look at the diff screw it will have scoring from where it looks like its been rubbing on the diff halves.

Also having said that i am currently running the delrin diff outdrives, although if you are running mod you should run the aluminium out drives as they are a lot more precise.

When you use the Associated diff screw what do you use for thrust balls and washers ??? I use Yokomo in mine, I also use aluminum out drives (Diff halves)
I run mod and I like my pro4 and my Cyclone but the diffs should be more like the XRAY I think. They have wave washers instead of a spring. I have made all the changes that have been suggested and I have a hard time keeping them from slipping.

The fronts have a larger diameter shaft then the rear, they both work in the front or the back.

Actually im not too sure about that. I use the v2 HD Unis. However you need to use v2 oneway or v2/v3 spool to use them.
If you run a spool then the v3 spool is the best one around, the one-piece aluminium ones wear pretty quickly.

It might be the ball on the end is a different size (the bit with the pin through it that fits into the drive cups). Thats the difference between the v2 unis and the standard ones, or perhaps it could be the fronts unis are thicker to take more shock from a spool or oneway???? But only guessing

If you now have the 70710 drive shafts...... Then the 61043HD(larger in the middle) and 61044HD(smaller in the middle) steel, They both will fit the one way 70713 and diff 70715, They also fit the aluminum replacement diff half's 61332 if you use the plastic C thingys ( is that a word ) Thats whats on my car.
Hope that helps you.
