    9 vs 10 speed front derailures interchangable?

    just built my bike, everything works but Im having shifting issues, not sure if its in the adjustment or incompatable components.

    basically I'm using my entire 9 speed shimano/raceface drivetrain and shifters, but just installed a Deore XT 10 speed front derailure. it shifts, but if im going up an incling it starts grinding when i shoft and does not want to shift in front or rear.

    is the deore xt front 10 speed derailure not compatable with 9 speed everything else?

    crank is setup 2x9 with a bash gaurd.

    thanks!

    answered my own question, with some adjustments, yes it is compatable and issue free. only spot for chain rub is bottom of derailleur guide, my bash guard is kinda big so the derailleur sits a bit higher
