Rear End Whining Again

Well my rear end started whining like 3 months after my gears were installed.

Idk if you guys remember the shop I took it to did them like 5-6 times before messing up my carrier and they had to replace it. And finally they got it right.
Well it's been whining for about 1-3 months now and I finally got sick and tired of it so at work I took the cover off and noticed the shims backed out Click image for larger version

So about 3 days ago I took the cover off again at home, and tried taking the bearing caps off and try to push it back in but didn't work so I took the carrier out , ( Remove Pin , Caps , Axles & c clips , Brakes )
And my dad inspected the carrier and everything was fine Click image for larger version

Bearing caps had some wear but looked normal , although the shims the idiot used were about like 10 paper thin shims on 1 side , and 1 thick one on the other side, the paper thin ones snapped off in half.

Anyways neither of us are experienced in Differentials at all , we set the ring and carrier in my diff. ALL BY FEEL we used some red grease to see the wear markings. And by some how i put it all together last night and drives very great! No noise!

That's AWESOME!!!
Sometimes, if you want the job done right, you have to do it yourself...

It sounds like you guys could have installed the gears yourself and wouldn't have had to go through all of the BS.
