F350 rearend setup specs (sterling 10.5)

My rearend took a crap on me Friday night. (Busted spider gears). I've never setup one of these particular rears before but I've dealt with a few ford 9" and Dana 44's. my question is that this one doesn't appear to have any side to side adjustment on the carrier like the old school 9". Is this true? And if so can I just pull the carrier, replace what's broke, and put it back together? My ring and pinion is fine, and as far as I know now, the only thing that's broken is one spider gear. (Of course Id replace them all though)

Thanks in advance for any advice.

I honestly would look for a lower mileage replacement I can't imagine nothing from the damaged gears didn't take a trip through the ring and pinion?

I had thought about that too. I'm going to do some further investigating before buying any parts or disassembling the rear.

Just an update...i did swap the entire rear out. (Found a used one not far from me,same ratio, etc)...

Once my old one was out I was able to investigate further and I believe the culprit to be a worn out pinion bearing. Too bad I didn't catch it sooner, but it could've been worse.
