I have a GM 7.5 10 bolt with an Auburn posi, replacing the stock open end unit. With the new install the stock axles have more side play and make noise as they travel side to side and slap.

Is it common practice to add shims, prior to c-clip installation?

thanks for any info ec

In reply to eddio:

With the cross pin out the axles will slide a ton. If you bought the right axle, once you put the c clip in, you will need to slide the axle as far outboard as possible to install the cross pin shaft. Once its in place you should have minimal lateral movement.
