Yep I used the SAK-58/PK as the tension post and used the screws with the DRB-BRIP, it comes with its own bearings but the screw that comes with it is too long.
I originally bought the SAK-59/V2/PK but when the SAK-D324 came out I purchased one of those aswell for the hopped up build I'm going to do eventually. You might want to get yourself some wider angle CVD's I use TRF Double Cardins but they are the expensive option 3racing SAK-X27 SSK's cost half as much and do the same job. Also take apart your factory assembled CVD's reassemble with grease and grind a flat on the pins add some thread lock to the grub screw and you shouldn't have any trouble with them.
Next time can you quote me please (no offence intended), I wasn't sure what you were looking into had to go back and read my posts lol. I think you were referring to my link to uras gang body mods? For future reference and my own pedanticity a spool is a locked diff.

I agree the FOW is the way to go you can get the D3 option part now I think its SAK-D324 but it has the same tube as the SAK-59/V2/PK So it doesn't matter which one you use but I'd go the D3 one as it has the logo on it lol.
I've cut the vents out in the front of my shell I'm getting ready to put an intercooler in it
anyway it's good practice I might get another of these shells eventually and redo these mods
