That is correct.

Instead if crushing down the sleeve to set your preload, you will use the shims to set the correct preload.

With a whole new gear set it will be trial and error. You can use it as a starting point to test, and maybe you'll get lucky. But either way it will be test, then adjust process

The back lash spec will be the usual .005" - .009"

Pinion depth depends on how your pattern looks. There is no real measuring it. You will need to install the pinion and then use shims to set the pinion depth to change your contact pattern on the ring gear.

You'll add or take away shims to either move the contact patch either inward or outward on the face of the ring gear.
