    MIP driveshafts question

    I have all 4 drive shafts installed, but my question is that it seems the front ball of the MIP goes to far in or is too large to fit in the Steering block (it goes in just seems snug) . Does anybody have this problem or did I install something incorrectly? Not my pic but what I am talking about.

    Mine rubbed just a bit at first. They will wear a slight groove where they need to. I think this is normal. Over a year and no issues with mine

    Make sure you put the little spacer on the axles before you pushed them through the steering block. Other than that they will rub a little at first.

    I just picked up the MIP's for my new ultimate and noticed when I took off my stock cvd's i noticed the set screw went through the output shafts and the mip's have the 2 set screws I was wondering if they just set into the hole on the output shaft and tighten up ok. I haven't got home yet to test just wondering thanks
    Also do you use the red tread lock on the set screws or the blue I always used blue in the past on my crawlers.

    My MIP's rubbed the inside of the front bearing carrier to. I took a dremel (with sanding wheel) to the carrier and took enough off where it could pivot freely. It's just enough that it catches and drives you crazy.

    Here is my thread hope it helps ya.

    <<< MIPs & aluminum carriers >>>

    And get the revo pins for where it connects to the diffs. They stay in much better than the grub screws that come with them

    Yep, LOL. A vise & sandpaper or rotarty tool with sand wheel works wonders. Quick easy fix though.
