Hey guys, I'm rebuilding the 8.8 I have in my fourth gen. F-body. First rearend I've done. I temporarily installed the pinion and pre-loaded it. Installed the carrier and set my backlash to .010". This is the wear pattern I'm getting. I've tried to compare it to the charts I've found and the coast and drive side seem to contradict each other. Not sure whether to add or remove pinion shims. Or maybe leave it alone? Any feedback welcome. Thanks
