K5RON had said that the carrier shims were outside the carrier bearings (at least I THINK that's what he said), so that pressing and unpressing the carrier bearings when setting up the differential would not have to be done (or just once if replacing the bearings). 1). Is this true? 2). How about the pinion bearing? Please respond only if you know for sure. I am planning on doing this soon and would like to know for SURE. Thanks in advance, this site is the best for K series questions and help.
