this is my first time to strip my rear diff, after only my 4th run with the mmp 5700 and the rear diff is completely stripped, the front bulkhead is alum, and i shimmed it when i got it, but havent shimmed the rear, because i just havent had to open it up yet.
but when i opened the front i noticed something that no one here seemed to know about at the time, a shim
on the input gear. here is a pic:
that shim the inside hole was drilled out a little by me before i got the shims i needed to put on the ring gear, so imagine that shim with a smaller inside diameter.
now that i am going to get into my rear bulkhead and replace diff, i know it is time to shim, but my question is since i am shimming the ring gear should i shim the input gear as well?
also is stripping diffs very common with a bb set up?
