Are we talking Pakistani-made flanges? Some of the older LITM flanges were okay, though I think even those may need to be revoiced.

There's a lot of good o'pinion drivin' this thread, both front and rear, but it makes little differential in the calculus of spline-to-axle ratios, whether you're Packin' a Stan, or a Lunch or a Baggis flange. LITM's aside, you'll be needin' mighty good spicer gear just to get this baby to whine a bit. Finally, you'll no get a toyota to whistle, no matter how long ye blow -- too much flangst, the spacing's all wrong and three toed sloth would be full-time busy, just to cover using all four limbs. You'll want a professional flange spanner just to assemble that bugger.

Overvoiced seems the the way to go hear.

hmmm.... interesting....

so where would a good place to look for a moderately priced, beginer-intermediate flange that will last me a while? And what would be the best way to get in contact with a flange-miester in my area? I don't know if I'll be able to go in alone. This whole thing seems strangly similar to buying a musical instrument...

I heard about some website... flangeobsession.com...

Possible threads for flange forum.

Flanges for beginners.
Avoiding cheap, mass-produced flanges.
A thread about how it doesn't really matter what kind of flange you have. A cheap one is perfectly fine if you're good at working flanges.
Is there a flange? What is the nature of flange? Why do some people insist on believing in flanges?
