Hmm so something i noticed the last time i looked at the diff (actually a few weeks ago). If i grind more into the sides to make it fit, i'm going to slowly cut into the inside of the output shaft hole. I don't know how to explain it any better, but if anyone has ever pulled their diff apart the part where the bearing rest will be cut into a little. Do you guys think that will effect anything?

Sorry, i'm a noob at differentials. it's my first differential i've taken apart.

And also, i probably shouldn't grind down the ring gear to help it fit right? as that will throw off the balance?
