Hello there, I am wondering what shims I should get for all three of my kraton's diffs. I bought the Arrma aluminum diff case for all three diffs, and I don't know if that would change what type of shims I should get. This is also my first time shimming a diff, so any tips would be appreciated.

Mugen E0206 shims are good to use but with the metal diff case you need to double up on the planetary gear shims so you may need more than one set.
The cheapest spot that I can find the shims at in Canada is hyperhobbies.ca Before I buy from the website can someone tell me whether or not it is legit?

The domain has been around for eight years, so that's a good sign. While the registrar info is redacted for privacy reasons and they don't list an address on their website, I'm finding enough information about people ordering from them all the time on legitimate forums that I'd say it looks safe enough.

Thanks for your help. The only other spot that I could find them in Canada was at walmart, and they were 40$ a set:oops::oops:.

The shims have arrived :) :) I am wondering if you have tips for someone who has never shimmed a differential? They are the kraton v5 diffs.
Assemble the diffs dry start with 1 of each shim. Do not add oil until you are satisfied with the diff feel.

should the diff feel tight when I turn it?
For me it doesn't "tighten" up until I put oil in it. Look for clunkiness or a bumpy feeling. If there is no play in outdrive cups and its smooth turning you're probably good to go. imo

Also there are these shim kits I've used.

So I shimmed the diffs by adding shims until they got kind of crunchy feeling then I just removed some until you could very very lightly feel the gears binding. would you guys shim like that? I assume after I run it they will wear into each other and have a good mesh.

Yup you want there to be a slight notchiness to them.
