I check both ring gear mating surfaces, spinning the posi and using a dial indicator and it is dead straight. It has to be coming from this ring and pinion. I go from one thing to another. My back lash is varying about .002 around the ring gear. What is acceptable? I know going through this I have had some with no run out. This is a new Motive performance 3.89 gear. I am thinking about sending it back to Summit and trying another one.
My motive R&P has .003 runout....I'm running it that way currently. I use up the recommended tolerance for backlash with it being like this.
