Im rebuilding the rear-end in my '99 Dodge 4x4. Its a 9.25 trac-lok. Gears, bearings, and races are brand new.
I think I set-up the backlash and carrier bearing pre-load correctly I would just like a second opinion.
Here are a couple pictures of the contact pattern. Hopefully you guys can see it fine, I didnt use a whole lot of gear marking compound.
The last thing I want to do is take the pinion back out, I dont have any way to pull the pinion bearing back off if I need to install or remove a shim. So hopefully this is good enough.
