Exactly this. 4.10 pinion perfectly installed, just bring the RING to match it. As DANA put the shims under the carrier bearings, this could be an iterative process... but I hope not. I'll put my low mile LSD in with the bearings/shims it came with (92K miles reportedly) and we'll see if the preload is proper AND the backlash. That's all it takes.

I did a full pinion setup on the 70 Chevelle.... an iterative process that I must have made 8 shim changes on to get right! No time for that on this car.......
