Yes,now I use a shim placed on the long side to solve the problem.There is not side to side play in this case too.

Good luck

i just shim on the shorter side only so as not to affect any gear mesh as diff can only move towards the bevel gear and not away from it

I think he might have tried that..??? but what I think he is saying is that the diff is also tight without the shims

then maybe it could be either the diff plate or ballbearings like you said earlier....but it's likely the diff plate

I was thinking of that being a option too ..on my CE-4 I had some problems like that on the front motor mount ..so that might have a bit of a difference ...

I have seen to Japanese Guys a Yatabe Arena that had this set up on there 'CUDA's" ..but They never ran their cars' Plus from what I could ask them ...( limited Japanese speaking skillz' ) they could only Use a 300M body... The Protoform 2.0 was oout of the question......
but for seeing them in action .. Thats a Big Fat Negative

Ohh I see Sorry .... I havent tried that... But I do run the short shocks all the way around on My normal 'Cuda' ... not much of a difference though

What did you notice with the longer shocks up front..??
