For those that found it hard to get the center bolt for the leafs to lock the axle into place after the shim in place.

I modified 4 washers for each side to fit between the shim and push the center bolt up. It is very important that you use the highest grade washers you can find. I used 8 Hardened Grade 8 Washers. See pics below.

Center Bolt does not go past shim, so it cannot lock the axle in place.

Used a Dremel with a thin cutting disc.

Wear thicker gloves than I did because the hot metal flakes melted through mine and burned.


Axle Locked into place.
New Shims and AAL Installed
