dana 44 rebuilt kit

hello ,
on my 1975 cj6 , i have a dana 44 3.73 ratio.
i'm currently rebuilding it and placing a locker....

stock the shim's differential were inside of the bearings ,

but in the rebuild kit it seems the shims are to place outside of the bearings ...

what's the difference ... is there any risk of using those ...
any advice ?

thank's .

Dana 44 shims go between the bearing cone and case. Whose rebuild kit are you using?

Dana 44 shims are supposed to go on before the bearings. Keep it that way no matter the difficulty. I have a set of bearings which I honed out the inner diameter so that I could slide them on and off without a press to get the setup correct. Once my backlash, preload, and gear pattern are correct I press on new bearings.

I dont think the shims out side the bearing will stay in place right -keep them under the bearing -this is how all dana rears are to i think
