Back to the axle build

Before I install these bad boys, I want to double check that the gears were done right by the shop that did them. I know at least one thing is wonky, the actuator bracket for the rear locker isn’t right. There’s a tab that fits into a slot on the actuator, and it’s not even close. I bought a new bracket, hopefully, I can take care of this myself.

I also bought some Prussian Blue – man that yellow stuff is EXPENSIVE – painted the ring gears. I put a load on the pinions and tried to run a pattern. Being blue, it’s not as clear as the yellow, but here they are. I just don’t know if these are within tolerance, or do these need to go to a drive line shop for new gears and install.

Any R&P experts out there, please feel free to chime in.
