    Pictures of how to shim a diff.

    This is a brief description of how to shim your diffs. I'll do my best to give you a step by step description of each picture.

    Here is a picture of the diff. and the shims I use.

    Remove the 4 screws shown in this picture

    Separate the cases

    Remove this gear

    Place shims on the shaft as shown. I usually start with 1 or 2 shims.

    Slide the shims all the way down until they are against the gear.

    Insert the gear back into the housing

    Put the cases back together and insert the 4 screws

    Check for slop by trying to move the shaft on the left in and out. If it feels snug, check for binding by rotating it. If it all feels good, your done. If it feels sloppy, add another shim. You want it to move as little as possible in and out, while still rotating freely.

    Hopefull this post helps those of you with questions on how to shim the diff. I'm not a pro by any means, this is just the method I use.
