Default Gear Swap on 2010 Failure

Well,
Just got off the phone with my mechanic that was doing the gear swap on my 2010 Dodge Ram ST Quad Cab 4X4, and the gears that everyone said would work fine from Motive Gear; do not fit. When the backlash is set proper he said the the gear rubs the case. Release enough to relieve the rub and you got .030 plus and slap.
This is of course the second attempt after he realized that a special tool is required to release the preload. Guess I just ate $600 in parts and $400 in labor. Beautiful!!
Is there any information about these POS rear ends listed on any sights?

Run some quality gears. Its deinately not the "pos"rearend. First I've heard of a bad install in a 02-10 9.25 rearend. Its either your gears or your mechanic. I have gears for your rearend installed on the ZF rearend. Now that's a motivated installer

The POS wasn't standing for "Positive" LOL. Called a shop and taking it in to them on Monday they talked with another source and have a different brand to install.
Could by my mechanic I suppose, but fI"m doubtful. He has done quite a few gear swaps and he actually machined the special tool required to relieve the pinion bearing load. Guess I will find out on monday when I take it to a local shop and see how that turns out.
Anyone interested in a set of 9.25 Motive Gears in 4.10

Yea, also tried to get the Yukon Gears and they told me that they are on back order about two months, so went with another brand.
