I'm sure a 4.10 is an entire different animal to drive than the 3.31 in my car now.
The pinion is already perfectly centered to the diff. by DANA. What anyone can do is start with this (an excellent starting point), then remove the G80 and install the LSD of your choice. Carrier bearings must still be preloaded about .006" and then the backlash checked (also supposed to target .006") If my good clean living pays off, the factory carrier bearing shims will perfectly center my LSD and the 4.10 ring gear..... but I'll be amazed if all that comes out to perfection
