020 outputs flanges
June 10, 2015 07:18PM
I'm putting my 020 trans back together with a gripper and the new ring and pinion. Can someone tell me I i need to keep the loaded springs on the 90mm flanges? They are impossible to get back on!

Technically no, it was put in to reduce the clinking noise of loose flanges floating around. They are a bitch. Couple of things it could be 1) the Gripper diff is thicker causing coil bind in which case it would be near impossible or 2) someone previously installed a heavy spring kit (80% etc) and it's got a ton of preload or coil bind. Are you using a compression bolt and h-beam?
I would take this opportunity to go to 100mm flanges if this is the later 90mm setup.

Power means nothing if you cannot control it!
