thats a good point! i was under the impression the spacer was about .25 inches tall.
how tall is the lip the ring gear rides on the inside edge of the carrier?
if its under the height of the spacer, i could see the problem for sure!
what about tacking the spacer to the carrier to limit movement? or even tacking all 3 together? bad idea?
it is done on dana 30's 35's and 60's, what makes a 44 so different?
