im thinking of doing the sj transfer box conversion on my vitara just a couple of things im not sure on

does the blanking plate need to be 4mm or can it be thicker as could use some 10mm alloy plate if it will be ok to use 10mm ???

do i need to replace the bearing & seal with ones with the same outer size but internal needs to be the size of the sj prop end ???
