I guess good news

A few months back I had a frpp lsd and motive 4.10 gears installed in my car, over the past few days I had experienced a extremely bad whine and almost like a grinding noise from the rear-end when I made a right turn. I took it back to the shop that did the work and I got the diagnosis today, apparently the shims on the passenger side for the ring gear "walked" themselves out of their slots and that's what caused my problem. They said they will be installing adjustable shims so this doesn't happen again. Anyone heard of this, would you say this is more of a installer problem or just bad luck, nothing has been damaged, so I won't be upgrading to the 8.8 quite yet.

hmm odd, i dont see how shims can move out like that, as long as they take care of it hopefully it will all work out

Re: I guess good news

Here is a picture of my torn up shims, real awesome to get from them (sarcasm). Also, anyone know how these rims will set under my car, I lowered it with frpp springs. Also, I will be going to virginia international raceway soon, so on performance wise other than the large increase of tire size, how will they handle a track.
