Default New rear end in a 4th gen Camaro - Help

My buddy hasn't had time to jump on here and ask for your guys help. So I'm asking for him. He's installing a new rear end on his 4th gen. He is having a hard time getting the right carrier spacers installed and have it have the right preload. People are saying to use a case spreader in order to get it installed. anyone come across this? any other ideas?

sandwich the thin shims between thick ones and tap them inplace with a brass punch and hammer.

i have never used a case spreader.
