    Could you thread the rod to be able to put a nut on it?

    I thought about that but not sure on my ability to thread it because it is aluminum. I'm worried it would make it too weak and break under hard acceleration, or I would just screw it up completely and be in worse shape I'm in now.

    i *think* you might have to put some washers in there, between the pin and the spring clip, adding more pressure the the spring, pushing the slipper clutch together harder............

    I have tried that but it pushes the driveshaft back and binds in the rear diff.

    If increasing the spring pressure is a no go, then possibly your best option would be to just lock the slipper so it can't slip at all.

    Ok so I tried the sand paper idea, no luck with that:dizzy:. I guess my next option is to lock them together, but how drill through it all and put a bolt? Any other ideas? I really don't want to have to lock it down completely if I don't have to, but then again I don't want to have to order a new set for it.

    aaahh bugger, sorry to hear it didnt work!!!
    now, might sound silly to ask, but it IS the slipper playing up, not something else by chance??? not saying its not the problem, just strange for it to do it with a lurch...
    ........... saying that, i'm trying to think what else it could be....... hummmmmmm.........

    man, hard to diagnosis with out being there or vid with sound........ can you post a vid at all????
    really has me stumped to why its lurching....

    I am thinking it is the slipper but I'm no expert so it may be something else. I will try to get a video up as soon as I can but not sure when that will be. Any other ideas what it could be other than they slipper clutch? I am at a complete loss as of now.

    I was thinking a bad diff, or a binding issue(like something done up too tight...) or there's something going on with the electronics.... but quite hard to pin point out an issue.........
