Thickness (Reference): 1.97 - 2.03 mm (0.0776 - 0.0799 in.)
If necessary, replace the clutch plate.
4. INSPECT COMPRESSION SPRING FREE LENGTH
Using vernier calipers, measure the free length of the spring.
Length (Reference): 32.8 mm (1.291 in.)
Installation is in the reverse order of removal (SA-141 ).
HINT: After installation, fill the differential with hypoid gear oil for LSD (SA-95 ), fill the brake reservoir with brake fluid, bleed the brake system (BR-4 ), check for leaks and check the ABS speed sensor signal (DI-505 ).
