Yep, I installed my Gintani so I know exactly what you're talking about. From what I was reading in that pretty long thread, it seems that these nuts simply hold the exhaust up and have no effect on the diff at all. Of course I put them back on properly, so I'm not worried, but I'm wondering if there are people out there freaking out over nothing and people perpetuating misinformation. Figured I'd try to save some people the future ulcer development
