Please do - Then we know whether to eraser the whole thread...LOL :D Just kidding.

JUST remember to everyone. THIS is NEVER a guarantee that your gears will NOT MAKE NOISE. But it is the correct pattern . Some gears are more forgiving to resonating noise and whine or a transition noise at the 50-60 MPH speed.

Torque the caps to the correct spec and double check your backlash - Because sometimes dirt in the saddle or carrier MIGHT not have been seated when you were setting up the rear. ALWAYS better to double check before running the gear - it will be TOO late by then.

Do your heat up and cool down break in cycles about 4-5 times

Run the car 5 minutes (no more than 5-10 miles NO FREEWAY) short run first -then 10 minutes second run letting the rear COMPLETELY COOL (VERY IMPORTANT FOR THE GEARS TO ROCKWELL CORRECTLY) ALL your doing is building heat in the rear and cooling the rear totally down.
TIP- You can not break in gears on a lift or with the rear end off the ground - YOU MUST USE THE WEIGHT OF THE VEHICLE TO BREAK IN THE GEARS!!!
That is a false break in and will not do the job.
