Other then people noticing it and complaining they wobble, nothing else has come from it. No extra wear or performance issues etc. Really kind of one of those, if it ain't broken don't fix it. I have not looked into the wiggle enough to know exactly where it is coming from so not sure. It does not seem to be a problem at all though.

They always do that. It's because of poor fitment between the outdrives and steel inserts in the diff cups. If you replace the outdrives with the HD units, before you wear the inserts out, it will eliminate most of the play.

The only downfall to the wobble really, besides noise and vibration, is it will eventually lead to the diff leaking due to the o-rings wearing out prematurely.

The DE ones are CRAZY flexible!! But, they are also crazy light as well.

I have mostly DE and like them, but as others have pointed out they're flexible and tend to not run very true. I gave the ProLine ProTrac's a shot this past weekend and I like them a lot.

I read that you have to trim the inside ribs for the fronts or else they'll rub - though I have yet to do that. Amain has a video that you can view that details this, it's embedded in the product page on their site.

I have the DE in my right hand and a JC in my left, sqeeeze, switch hands, sqeeze, have friend try,

they seem to have very similar amount of pressure required to flex. I wonder if one "returns" straight better

they are ugly but the stock AE sc10 4x4 rims fit no rubbing

I am running the Aaron Lane Setup on a tight indoor dirt track and its working fairly well except for the fact that the rear end tries to pass the front end once in a while. I am running 5-5-3 and was wondering what changes I could do to help fix this. I went from 2.5 toe in the rear to 4 toe and it seemed to help a bit. If I went to 7k in the center diff would that help the front end pull more? Or should I play with my rear shocks?

I'm pretty new to setups / tuning so sorry for all the dumb questions, but on the Phend and Lane setups it says to run the rear camber link in the 2-B locations. Currently my truck is 2-A (stock), if I move my link to the B location will I need to adjust the length of the links (I'm assuming so)? Just want to be sure because currently I have a camber gauge so I'll just leave it where they're at until I get one if that's the case.

Also, I switched my rear shocks over to the Phend setup with 32.5, emulsion, 27mm ride height, etc and it seems like the truck wants to bottom out a lot...is this normal?

Are you running the new springs?
Did you set the ride height. Actually I think going thicker in the center will make that worse.

Bottoming out is not bad unless it bounces. Tuning the shocks stiff enough to not bottom out will really effect the handling in the bumps and turns in a negative way. IF you move the camber link to a new hole you have to reset the camber to 1-2 deg.
