    Purchased a Detroit and an open diffed 14ff, removed open carrier from donor and commenced to install detroit along with Rock ring from poison spider. That thing is thick as hell trying to cut it to match my shaved 14ff :D

    Well, last night I fixed the Detroit as it had a shim still in the carrier. It wasn't letting the clutch release and was making some racket.

    Luckily there was no damage done to the unit :o
