Wouldn't be a bad idea. Not sure if I will leave the brushed aluminum look or get it polished to a mirror with everything else...

Spiders sound like a sloppy BJ.. but not bad..
As long as there is a groove in the ring or pinion those "should" be good, what the actual lash at? Should be .005"-.010"

Haven't measured but I'll pick up a dial indicator and check it. Feels pretty good by hand.

Spiders are twice as bad as video shows.
