I was wondering how the carrier bearing preload is set on the tacoma 3rd's since they no longer have the adjustments on the side of the units. Do we have to use a spreader on the case to insert the carrier and shim then release the spreader or how does this go.

Ok now I see the part of setting the carrier bearing preload. Missed the part about using a spacer that was .***** thicker then the correct one for backlashing then check backlashing again.

The pinion bearing pre-load I didnt have a problem with.

You want to make sure you have some preload to start with-
Once you remove the bearing case/cap- the shims should be "snug" - They should not simply fall out nor should they require an act of god to remove.

You should have a reference of toyota carrier side shims as an excel file in my reply in you R & P thread
