Alright need some advice, rebuilt the alum rear gear case. Check mesh and friction all seemed perfect, gears are highly grease and undamaged. After reassembly taking care not to overtighten it started again. Tires don't roll smoothly and the gears or diff clicks or binds. Thinking a ttr or integy ball diff will fix the issue. To clarify this is only affecting the rear I try aluminum gear case. Stock front case rolls just fine.

This happen to anyone else? Is it something I might be doing?

Thanks in advance.

Did you retain all the stock shims when you swapped to aluminum?

I ask because I remember having a set of used axles that were missing a shim.... thought nothing of it.
Funny thing though.... the missing shim was allowing one of the gears to ride too close to the case (or another gear I forget)... but once I finally figured that out.....
Boy I was really flustered till then though.....

Talking about the washers inside and out of the gear case? That's a good point I used all the original hardware I could, but I'll double check to confirm its correct. Thanks!
