Going to be installing a torsen diff in my car within the next couple of weeks. Wondering if anyone who has installed one remembers whether the stock shims for the diff side gears worked for them or if they had to use another size shim. I know it is different from trans to trans and diff to diff just trying to get an idea of likelyhood of needing the shim kit.

oh ok well I can't help you too much on that one. I'm sure someone on here has done it but they might be sleeping right now since it is 1 am where I'm at but I'm sure there are people awake in california lol

Maybe I should clairify my question. I will be measuring everything and if needed changing the shim to get it set up correctly. I am trying to decide if I should shell out the money for the shim kit up front and possibly not use it if everything checks out with the stock shim, or try my luck and set it up without having the kit on hand and order it if needed. I can get it within a day if I need it. Just would prefer not to spend money on parts I don't use. Either way it will be set up correctly before I reinstall the transmission.
