You need more add more shims to the pinion, like .055 to start with and see what it looks like. Anytime you make a pattern, you need to use a pry bar on the ring gear to make a GOOD amount of drag on it. The coast side needs to be more centered on the tooth for it to be runable. The more resistance you put on the ring gear will make the ACTUAL drive points on the gear show up better. I use a 1 foot breaker bar on the pinion and the pry bar on the ring gear to make drag. Just make sure that the backlash is at .010-.012 because its a used gear and is broke in. You will get it
