the diffs are larger ones and thrust the smaller. shimming the diff when you put in the bulkhead.

There should be a spare thrust ball for each diff too, should get 6 to fit nicely around the thrust screw.

The standard shimming is one shim on each side of the diff, do it like this the first time you run the car. Then when you go to rebuild the car you can take some time to see how many shims removes the diff play without making it tight and you can use them to push the diff to one side, away from the bevel gear to give a looser mesh which is also quieter

Installing thrust balls is a tricky little job. Put one thrust washer on the bolt, then get your black diff grease and put a small amount around the washer you just put on the bolt. Then put some on the end of a small screw driver and use the stickyness to pick up a thrust ball or two and place them on the washer, keep going until you have six on there. Then drop on the second washer, and carefully insirt it into the short diff half. Not the long one like someone else did around here (no not me)

the grease goes on the small washer and then the thurst balls
sandwich between the 2 washers.

chassis prep www.alexracingusa.com has the info there
