Here are a few tips for making sure your Mi2EC assembly goes smoothly.

1.  The rear diff assembly tells you to use 2 shims on each side of the front and rear diff.  Start with one shim on the left rear output on the read diff and add shims until you have just a tick of end play.  You need some play or you will have binding.

Start with one shim on the right front output of the front diff and go from there.

More to come...

You will have to check this out for yourself.  You want then end result to be just a tick of side to side play in the front at rear diffs.  I have a feeling 4 is too many.  You most likely will need 1-2 shims per diff. If you need only one put it on the out drive furthest away from the belt.  This will improve belt tracking at speed.
