The carrier was reinstalled, carrier bearing caps torqued, and the backlash and mesh pattern rechecked. We should note that some installers use a case spreader to stretch the housing to tightly shim the carrier bearing preload. Other installers simply shim the carrier (adding equal shims to each side) as tight as they can and still get it installed in the housing without using a spreader.
