The Rear is In Gear...big THANKS to Ben at PuddyMod, who had AMAZING response time. Ben explains the setup thus:
I built you a PM Stage 2 setup with micro polished 3.73 gears. I also installed the OSGiken LSD and set the pressure springs according to what I believe will work best for your setup and needs.
The rear is rebuilt from the housing in starting with every part being cryogenically thermo cycled, then new pinion bearings and seals are used to assemble. There is a one piece PuddyMod solid steel sleeve used instead of an OEM crush collar. The solid sleeve is made of 10/20 mandrel steel, it is seamless and will not compress under heavy stress like the OEM can. Solid sleeves are used in high performance racing rear ends because they work, we just take it to the next level. The PM sleeve is a custom machined part to fit this rear, it is not shimmed it is a precision machined one piece steel sleeve. The stock hardware is replaced with cryo treated hardware. Backlash is set giving a tighter gear to gear fit.
Fully balanced assembly of the rear using precision accuracy to better than factory tolerances.
Here are your build pics and build information/specs.
this pic shows the assembly, note the PuddyMod solid steel sleeve on pinion.
