Anyone tried using LX 570 octalink spider (58x94 BCD) to work with XTR 952 octalink crank? i want to try smaller combination rings. any input is greatly appreciated.

That doesn't work.

Although the spline pattern is the same, the LX spider is too thick to get the lockring to tighten properly. You can however use a spider from M750 or later XT cranks and some aftermarket spiders. As mentioned in your previous thread, I have an Avitar spider that works fine.
