Question Differential clutch pack replacement

I am going to replace my clutch packs in my 2003 F350 7.3L SRW 4x4. (dana 80????). The only tricky part about it after reading about it is the BACK LASH on the gears. It looks like they have you look at it before and and after. It looks like it is pull out fix and put in. Is it simple or does this need a diff specialist?

I attached a DRW procedure, any one have anything better?

P.S. LOVE THIS PLACE

I am no differential expert, but I would think that as long as you did not mess with the pinion depth or carrier bearing shims, it shouldn't change the backlash at all.

I rebuilt mine the other day and it was pretty straight forward. I took out the old clutch packs and shims and measured the shims and replaced with the same thickness. I all bolted together fairly easy. I also changed ghe gear rato from a 373 to a 430.

Good Luck!

I got them thru justdifferentials.com and they must have got them from the ford dealer as they came in a ford dealer box.
