The client's diff did not come with any spacers. I'm assuming they're metal. Although different sizes the left and right hands came with 0.5mm; 0.2mm; 0.15mm. Those of you who rebuild your differential on these cars, what do you use for shims - and do you also use a gasket sealer?

I would imagine most of you use gasket material and make your own. I also assume the best way to determine what thickness to use is to install the entire housings, then using feeler gauge measure the space between the housing and center section.

Any logical comments are welcomed.

Spacers for diff are made in a special material. Very thin, but like a "spring".

Very hard to do without the good tools.
Gasket sealer for lateral arms.
