Maybe you guys could help me with this. Do any of you have an issue with when tightening the front upper suspension block just about snug the way it should be, the upper arms tighten up and lose their freeness. I HATE this. So to free up the arms I have to loosen the suspension block to a point where there is a little bit of wobble of the block. Is this okay?

Default M2C 2576 DELRIN CENTER DIFF REPLACEMENT BUSHINGS



GUYS,
There is some confusion the Amain wording of this replacement bushing
This bushing will fit both stock STRR AND THE MP9 TOP PLATES.
It also fits our split center diff mount (part no. m2c 2575)
the part no. 2776 center diff bushing is made for our m2c part no. m2c 2775
and is NOT A replacement for the stock mp9 top plate.
I have contacted AMAIN to correct the problem.
sorry for the confusion on this.

Something isn't right there. Make sure you have the you're arms orientated correctly. The "k" should be facing up and obviously l/r on the correct sides. Make sure the little clips are spaced correctly taking into account the caster insert in the hub and kickup angle and roll center (6,9, h, l) bushings. The setting guide should guide you. If you already have done all that, sometimes there is just a tad of flashing on the upper arm where the pin goes through. Also keep in mind the little clips are different widths so you gotta make sure you're not putting a 2mm clip in when you should have put a 1 mm one in. You can also cycle the suspension with out clips and see where the upper arms settle and use your best judgment on where to put the clips. The only thing they do is act as spacers. Lastly, a fair amount of slop develops there so it'll be free in no time. The suspension block should not be loose.

what I was afraid of, I knew they had to be snug, if thats so, then I know for sure the left upper arm will be way to tight wont even move, the right wont be as tight but still too tight. hmmmmmmm everything is installed correctly upper and lower arms, the bushings are in all the way. Why cant they just make the plastics fit better from the factory. its really not that hard

Awesome! thanks for the update. What will the aluminum center diff mount do for chasses characterstics and flex/handling? Will it change these characteristics at all?

To my knowledge, it does not change the charastics of the chassis.
but it makes it really easy to service. I have had a lot of guys tell me
that , just because it is so hard to get the diff in and out that they avoid
servicing the diff as much as possible.
and to do a diff change at a club race when you only got 40 or 50 guys
and the programs are running fast, they couldn't do it in time, especially
if they were running multiple classes.
now it is a 10 minute change.

I am running the M2C center diff mount and it had no effect on handling.

I love the fact that I can pull the center diff, change the fluid and have it back together very quickly. Because servicing the center diff is so easy I find that I experiment with different fluid weights much more frequently than in the past and as a result my truck is working better than ever now.

Just finishing up a new TKI3, is everyone starting out with either the 2010 WC or the CK loose setup these days? or is there a new good base setup?

I think the weight is a wash. By the look of the mount I think they have a little less metal the stock mount. I think value would be in the design.
