ok i'm going to guess here, but most likely one of the stepped pieces goes between the bearings (larger probably) and then the other piece goes outside of the bearing, against the nut.

A lot of companies decided that they didnt need the spring action of the cone washers, and have gone to a simple aluminum spacer.

I don't know about anything between the bearings. My KSG uses the larger spacer type piece between the outer bearing and the diff. nut. (in place of the cone washer). I'm gonna say the shorter one sets in the spur gear to center it on the axle. ;)

Diff Rebuild

The spacer goes in the middle of the diff with one of the unflanged bearings on either side. One Ring on the axle flange, one ring on the diff hub, spur gear in the middle with diff balls in the inner most circle of holes. Use the step spacer with small side against the outside bearing face of the hub, then tighten with the nylon nut.

Normally you would use 2 flanged bearings in the diff hub. On closer look that diff hub doesn't look like it is machnied with a recess on the inside for the non flanged bearing to rest in. You'll need two flanged 1/4 x 3/8 bearings.

Hope this helps.
