Yes - It was installed in a fellow 02ers box and I saw him last Sunday. He said that while there is still a bit of play it was dramatically reduced and the on center feel he was missing before has returned. But his shims were worn as well and we took the shims from an extra box I had.
The only negative thing, which he acknowledged has little or nothing to do with the box, is the effort was not reduced. But he runs 205/15s. To reduce the mechanic who rebuilt it and a bunch of us in the group agreed he swap for 195s, go to 14s, get a larger steering wheel, yada,yada,
I drove the car and the steering feel on the road was excellent. But I had not driven it before the comprehensive kit was installed.
