BTW I should have a new part# list here within a week for some of the new R2 parts...

I know Just take a look at the pic... I know that the arms are the Long ones ... But you will have to flip the bar around 180' and mount it on the "SHOCK TOWER" vice the upper deck.... same mounting for the say bars on the front but you will have to drill some holes on the A-arm to mount the bar in the front.. ..BTW do you have any Alex sway bar kits yet.????
here look not the best pics' but.... you'll get the idea...just mount them like this ..."but" don't mount them between the bulk head and shock tower... just mount them on the outside





If you have more Q's just ask

-Dave

Default Any shim??

Hi,Barracuda players.Do you use any shims to hold the ball diff. in the bulkhead??
The instruction mentioned to use 1 shim every size.But when I did it,it was too tight for the diff.So the diff slips easily.
Do you have the same problem too??

Hmm I keep hearing about all of these diff problems either with shims or with the diff bolt and nut.... But I have yet to have one problem with any of my Alex Diff's ...I use the shims but I have no problem with binding at all..

I don't think it is because I too have a PAL version .. ..Have you tried to rebuild the diff..?? or did you replace the diff balls in the kit.?? ...Hmmm ....

The diff is set to without slip before put in the bulkhead.So it is not the problem of the diff. itself. How I solve it is to remove 1 of the shim,then the diff doesn't slip any more.

Tsubasa..


How much side to side play does the diff have when it is installed with out any shims..?? or if you do have to use a shim place it on the long side of the diff (left side if looking from the back) it might free up a little play on the shaft counter gear... .hmmm Have you tried that yet..??
