You have to put shims on the pinion between the bearing and the gear. Then assemble WITHOUT the crush sleeve, carefull not to damage the pinion nut. Next you have to check clearence with the proper gauge or with ink that usually comes with the gear set. Adjust shims as neccesary to get proper clearence. You install the crush sleeve before your final assembly and torque to factory specs.
