gday,just wondering where we can buy them now that Hobzee has closed? need to do 2 x rear diffs,thanks
yeah i think ill just buy a pack of brass shim and cut my own!I think you'll find that the shim a bit to thick, its midway between locked and a decent Lsd. You could perservere with it and it may relax or it could also take a while.
I've been playing with shims for a little while, making my own for the very reason that the bought ones are 0.7mm which in some fitments has fully locked the pack. Each lsd will be different in the amount of wear it has therefore requiring a different thickness.
I first shimmed mine to 0.6 and that made it very tight but to much tyre skip, to locked. I then went 0.5 but that had heaps of chatter like yours, not very nice to drive at all. Pulled that out and made a 0.25, that made it a good lsd on and off road. After about 4 months it loosened off a little, so I pulled it out a month ago and used a 0.4 thickness, that has put it back to a good unit again. Nice and tight even with 35 simex's on and no road chatter.
Try going on a good hard run, lots of turns etc to wear the clutch plates down a bit then change the oil. Even a good offroad run with lots of climbing will load the unit up. Or pull it out and cut up some nescafe coffee tin, 0.25
