First time setting up rear end.

Hey guys! Im trying to get my rear end squared away so I can get it bolted back under the truck (47 Dodge). The rear end in question is a 8.5 10 bolt with Detroit True Trac and Richmond 3.73s.

I have been messing around with pinion shims and backlash for about 5 hours now and got a pattern that looks decent....to me!? I want to get some professionals opinions on it to make sure Im on the right track since this is my first time messing with this.

The drive side pattern is the first photo below and the coast is the second:

any help is greatly appreciated! Im going at this semi-blind so I could use some help. Thanks!
