9 inch rear carrier clutch clearance?

I am rebuilding my rear end and have a problem everything is gone good but I replaced the clutch pack and it seems tight what I mean is when you put the two units together and tighten the two little screws its a liitle hard to metal to metal should I just remove a steel shim I read that it should be about 650.000 of an inch anyone got a idea this is a standard 9 inch 2.891 carier with trak loc posi unit 28 spline axles and big bearings thanks much Transtar cruizer

Wow, use a period and some capitol letters every now and then.

Are you checking it with the springs installed? If you are then take them out until you have everything set right. Is this a Traction Lock differential? If it is then you want it to be slightly loose when it is bolted together with no springs installed. If you set it too tight then it will chatter bad when you turn corners.
