That is how I do it. You just take a bit off each end until it looks good. You want to make sure the diffs screw together nicely.
This past weekend I had issues build two diffs. The problem was the ST31 outdrive seating against the large shim and bearing w/in the diff. Once the o-rings got lubed better everything would fit well, but until then I couldn't get one of the outdrives into the hole.
