    Ok, thanks for the input guys. I will work on getting it back apart and losing a little shim along the way. Much appreciated.

    Tore the rear end apart. Shims were at .040. Dropped to .035. Will have to wait for new crush sleeve to show up. Should be here in a couple days. Did get the axle bearings and seals installed. Started looking over the rear disc brake kit I have. Hope all goes well and I will be buttoning this thing up by next weekend.

    Don't use a crush sleeve untill the final build! Pre-load the bearings without it and run the pattern, then post the pics agin.

    I thought I covered that in post number 6. Don't use the crush spacer until you have the pattern correct and you do the final assembly. Also, save the new pinion nut for the final assembly. On the final assembly smear some RTV sealant into the splines of the yoke, NOT THE PINION SHAFT, and use red Locktite on the threads when you install the nut.

    You did. Another 3 dollar mistake. I will mock up without it and check again. So when I mock up the rear end without the crush sleeve am I still shooting for the same inch pound rating on the yoke?

    Yes, be sure that you set the bearing preload the same as you will for the final assembly for every trial set up.
