What did I just break

After doing some work on the Jeep and getting the brakes, traction bar, and air lines dialed in I took her for a test drive.

I was pretty happy with the results and indulged myself in a small celebratory burnout.

After the burnout I have gear noise on coast or deceleration.

Yj, rear SOA, Super 88, 5.13 gears, 37" tires.

I've seen articles pointing to pinion bearing preload, others citing carrier bearing issues.

I've never set up the innards of a differential before - What should I look for here? Hopefully someone has done this same boneheaded move and has experience fixing it....
