5.0 Quality shim kit.

The shim kit is very well thought out. The thin shims are put inside the two main pieces where they will not get bent or fall out.

Question & Answers

1 Answered question

Q: Hi, I bought this kit but the main pinion bearing is wider than the original. I already installed the race. Do you know if this bearing size at this location has changed since 2005? As long as it works with the new pinion doesn't bother me but now I can't reuse the old bearing as temporary to set new gear depth. Thanks, your quick response would be very appreciated as the wife is not happy about the jack stands in the d/w. Answer this question

A: Hello The new bearing and race should measure out to work in your housing. The new bearing has a different taper than the old bearing. Thanks
