    wow...that sux, 1/8th isnt that much, look closely and ensure that the axles arn't side matched, don't think they would be though.

    Moser said to grind it, also said that it never happens.... I used a band saw with cooling fluid. If I was running a spool it would not have been a problem but the Truetrac has something stopping it. not a big deal but we pay top dollar for these parts and shouldn’t have to grind or cut them to make them fit, if there made to fit our application.

    Brand new, my Moser 12 bolt lash measured in at a fat 0.011" and it whines at 1,800 rpm under steady cruise. The fit and build quality of the axle housing were exceptional... just the gear setup is an issue. If I had to do it over again, I probably would have went with a Strange 12 bolt.

    +1 I said the same thing,and my moser has the same issues,plus the axle leaks just enough where you get a whiff of axle oil every time you get out of the car after driving.but it doesn't leak enough to leave a spot on the driveway

    my 12 bolt gave me hell with the Eaton, upgraded to the 9" after catastrpophic failure of the 12 bolt finally... and every since day 1 with the 9" the axle seals leaked enough that in the 2k ive driven since, ive had to take easy off to the backs of my wheels with a wire brush... the brakes are cooked also... FUCK Moser Engineering...
