I'm sure that there is a tool for that, but I don't have one. If I can turn it by hand then it's loose. Most of the time they don't turn when I torque the lug nuts.

Good luck with the shoulder. I just took the ice pack off of mine.

BGH,

I was bad! I went out and finished torquing the ring gear bolts and setting the backlash (all with my left arm). Using my homemade yellow "paste" I changed pinion shims from 0.027" to 0.038" to 0.050" and could not discern any change in pattern, at all. After wiping it all down, sticking in a single 0.020" shim, setting b/l at 0.008", and using some Prussian blue compound, this is what I'm now looking at. By then, my arm was getting sore so I quit. The coast side is fairly pronounced, but the drive side doesn't show as well. What's the verdict?

I've never been able to read a pattern with that blue stuff. I can't say for sure.
