Default Academy SBV2 Assembly Question

Good Morning All.

I am assembling the front hubs and have a question re the "Diff Hub Ring". How does it stay onto the Diff Hub ?? It is not clear in the instructions and seems to slip on and off fairly easy. Also the picture seems to be wrong... it shows the beveled end with the 2 notches going to the inside or towards the diff itself. If assembled that way the axle will not mount into the hub properly. If the diff ring is placed with the beveled end and notches towards the outside then it seems to assemble properly. Thanks for your comments !!!

Those rings go on with the beveled end inward. They will not interfere with the CVD/dogbone, it doesn't plunge in far enough and if the rings slide out the tabs will touch the dogbone pin which will push it back it. If something isn't clearing/fitting then your hubs might not be assembled/seated properly so that's the first thing I'd check.

Awesome.... I thought the diff rings retained the axle... if assembled properly the axle actually retains the diff ring which in fact just keeps the slotted socket from spreading ???? (just thinking outloud). I just assembled it bevel in and everything is purrrfect... Thanks a bunch !!!
