In Topic: 521 KYB gas-a-just shocks?

27 April 2018 - 03:36 PM

Nice, just bought all four on Rockauto. They were only $30 a piece and if you buy all four there is a mail-in rebate for $40! New shocks all around for $80 is a steal!

So KYB Gas-A-Just shocks are probably the best aftermarket replacement for shocks? I am in the market right now to replace my rear shocks since they are blown.

In Topic: 521 rear axle shims

Well I bought the kit off a guy who already installed it but never used it because he decided to convert to 5 lug. But I also didn’t have my differential in because I was waiting for my gasket that arrived today. Now to install the new diff gasket, do I NEED to have a dealer of some sort applied? If so, would clear rtv work?

Ok, I left them all on the way they were when I took the axles off. But now I have fully installed the disc brake conversion and there is a ton of wobble/play. Was I supposed to leave some of the backing plate on to fill the gap? I had the entire plate cut off.

In Topic: Rims and tires for 521

The inbound concerns start when running positive offset wheels or too fat of a tire.
Outbound issues occur with extremely negative offset wheels, or wheels that are just way too wide.
Those specs you list above should be fine.

Will I have any poke coming out of the wheel wells? What's the max specs the 521 wheel wells can have to keep a flush fitment?
