The pinion nut isn't torqued yet. I was thinking not only will that procedure preload the bearings yes but also open the backlash up those .002'' ideally from the compression of the bearings. I have been torquing the bearing caps on the carrier during setup.

I loaned out the proper torque wrench from the parts house so I can finish this up. Just need to know if the pattern is agreeable? It is pretty centered on both sides with the coast side a little towards the heel which I have read is acceptable.
