Also I'm running gt3 21.5 motors. I think I going to try 32.5 and 30 rear shock oils and I might come down one spring size as I traction rolled last week once.
Arrr sorry I misread your post, I thought you were proposing 600cst rear diff.

Yes I think 600k is too light for the front, I always use putty. Maybe you could use 1mil or 2mil oil in 21.5. I have a suspicion the front diff will make traction roll worse as it will let the front roll deeper into the corner, see how you go I guess.
