There's been a lot of discussion about how the Outcast's diffs need to be shimmed. I have an Outcast on the way, and I've also purchased some the shims recommended. Can anyone give me guidance about which gears need shimming and how many shims of what thickness are recommended?

Thanks.

Thank you for getting back to me. I'll certainly review that video. I have the parts on back-order via Tower, and they are expected to ship in the next few days.

Edit: The video is very helpful. Thanks again.

Thanks for all the information. What's needed to correctly shim the pinion gears front and rear?

Am I getting this right?

7 shims per differential? 6 on the cross pins and 1 for the planetary gear?

Looks like the washer he uses on the planetary is different than the ones on the cross pins, but those two part numbers show the same shims.

There are entire threads on this topic, so poke around. I'm running 50k front, 100k center, 30k rear.
