Hey guys,

I’m installing a Detroit locker in a Ford 8.8. I’m reusing the factory gears and have not touched the pinion. I have the backlash set .008-.010 between 4 measurements around the ring gear. How does this pattern look?

What side of the gear are you running on driving forward?
It looks like based on your pictures and description this is a rear axle. Based on that I'd say your drive side pattern is a little deep, but as long as you aren't too close to the radius in the bottom of the tooth you should be OK. How does it sound? I'm surprised the pattern is that spread apart for a non-loaded contact pattern. I'd expect it to be a lot more towards the toe, but it looks like it spans almost the whole tooth.

Yes, This is for the rear. When checking the pattern I spun it using one of the axle shafts instead of using the pinion? Don't know if that would cause any issues
