When you were doing your seal, could you move the pinion around before you pulled the bolt off? Can you now? That much won't need to do any backlash measurement...just grab the pinion yolk and see of it chucks in and out.
I already had the yoke off, and i put the new one on, b/c I am going to be picking up a '92 8.25, and I only need this axle to last me a couple weeks, to mostly move the jeep around, so im not too worried about it right now. I think it might of moved in and out a little bit, and there was some wear on the pinion, i got the new yoke on there real good, so it isnt movin too much, just side to side b/c of the backlash, and the rotation of the driveshaft, no in and out action
