When I built my diffs I put the shim on the diff side checked the backlash and it had virtually none. Installed the shim on the gear side checked it and it was perfect. Used some synthetic grease on the gears and called it done.

Thanks
i shimmed the pinion so it fit tight on the geargiff then took out shim on the diff added mobil1 grease checked backlash and its perfect.but i do believe everones diffs should be shimmed to get them right per vehicle and rechecked after broke in..it made my drivetrain freed up also.
