lol they told me I could take em out and beat on them if I wanted, said there was little chance of anything happening. Just if I wanted the work warrantied to treat them nice. A lot of big time well known gear shops ask for this.

Yep, I wouldn't trust an installer that said other wise. I mean, nothing is gonna change, it either whines from the start or it doesn't.

I'm very happy with the work, I have zero whine and everything looks great down there... He also said it doesn't have to be changed again anytime soon... I don't know if ppl break it in and change the fluid again

If you install them yourself. I heard you can go back with the same thickness of shims that were in it from the factory. Is that true? If so, that would cut out a lot of headache right there. Correct me if I'm wrong

That's a good place to start. The wear pattern ultimately determines how you shim it. More times than not, that's how ppl do it, thus the whine.

with that said what about all the bearings? do you have to replace all of them or can you leave them alone. I know you have to replace the one on the pinion, but do you have to on all the others

No, but why not since your already in there. Bearings are the easy part.
