putting 4.88's on my detroit locker for my yj dana 30.
the carrier comes out/goes in easily (don't need a pry bar to take it out, or a hammer to get it in)
the gear pattern is perfect, but i am worried that the carrier might need another shim.
should i add .002" to the carrier, so it is a bit more snug; or just call it good after i put new bearings on?? (maybe the new bearings will tighten it up a little)
like i said, the pattern is absolutely perfect, and i don't want to make the pinion mesh any deeper on the ring gear; so if i add, what side should i put the shim on??
will .002" make that much of a difference on the pattern anyway?
i can take a couple of pics tonight or tomorrow if needed.
