when/if all else fails take it to a rear end shop with the manual print out so they can see the specs.
but TA is spot on with advise as to shims and setting up, not hard but time consuming .. and to make matters worse the bearings probably are a semi press fit so don't go on/off the pinion shaft very easy.. a good set up shop has bearings that the inner race is clearanced just a smidgeon to slide on off easy for fitment until a shim size is determined for final fit... however they may not have the size we use in these.
disclaimer .. I have not been in or looked at the rear ends of our rigs yet
