What was your backlash before the swap? If you set the backlash to that number you could swap in the spool without running a pattern, but as it sits right now I'd bet you're running on the heel which is a bad thing. It's better to run more root. Also how much carrier preload did you put in?

That's what it was at when I removed it, I measured before and after and used the same shims on the carrier and it was spot on. How do I know if I am running "heal or root"? And what the heck is carrier preload!

I'm thinking he wanted to say pinion preload which could have been measured off your other pinion depth. Also I've heard the terms drive and coast side. The drive side is the part contacting the gear when under acceleration. The coast as you guessed it is when decelerating. Optimally you want to be center or a shade in on the drive side. 10 sounds on the high side for backlash. I would think more like 7 or 8 would be better for the backlash. **** it, drive it like you stole it

I heard max backlash is .015 so I figured that .010 should be gravy, either way I'm go to rock it until the gears fall off haha. On a side note I got a stock pitman arm from azdevilyj (big thanks) in the mail today, I plan to have the local Offroad shop drill and ream my knuckles/ pitman arm mid next week. I would start tonight but I have a Memorial Day run on Monday So.............

Oh alright good. If your gear setup guy did a good job you should be spot on. Except for the carrier preloaded.
You know if you are heel or toe by running a pattern. Heel is the outside of the gear, toe is the inside. Root was the incorrect term, but that is the deepest part of the tooth.
Carrier preload is how much the carrier bearings are preloaded. Just like pinion bearings they too need preload.

I don't see why it would be any diff weather it's on top the knuckle or below it. You have a chop saw?

I had to shorten my stock draglink when I went OTK. I would mock it up first with pvc install the tre's then measure for the dom. Pvc is a lot cheaper than dom to screw up.
