I have read that one of the inherent problems with the spine stripping is due to the shaft spline not being long enough to fill the entire length of the output. ( ok I realize how this is sounding..LOL) Some have added a shim/spacer at the diff side in order to lengthen the shaft allowing it to seat deeper eliminating this problem. LMAO!!
