Iirc that write up also isn't correct, I bought some of mad baja's shims and he states f type diffs only on his listing I'm sure.

Ok, frustrating, like I said that was desktop research. I'll attempt it at some point when I get the shims.

Just double checked, it's e type diffs not f type, but he does state they only fit  on e type of diffs.

I've done > dozen of these.

E type diffs only, for that shim thickness.

Diff can be removed with the box in the car, yes. Just drain the oil, move the rear driveshaft off to the side and undo the 6 torx bolts holding the end of the box (and the heatshield) on.

Watch out for the spring, shim(s) and a conical washer which will likely fall out. They have to go back in the correct position/orientation/order, of course.

The center diff simply pulls out of the box at that point.

You only need to remove 2 of the roll pins and 2 sets of the helical gears, to get the center out and modded.

I use a dremel to make a mark on the gears and housing, instead of trying to find and line up the tiny tiny letter on the gears, as that Stasis guide suggests doing.

HTH
