    I'm having a hard time figuring out if the noise is from the gears or the jack stands. Is it still the same as it was before or is it better?

    The few spins at the end I think the jack stands stayed still. The noise sounds better, less clunky.

    OK, this one has me stumped. I don't know what else to tell you. It's hard to figure out something like this through pictures and videos.

    I understand, I appreciate all the hp! Now that I've got the pattern in a good spot, I may just run it.

    Before you run it, are you replacing the wheel bearings?

    Yup, wheel bearings have been replaced.

    Well I've got about 160 miles on the new rear end. It does make some noise, but I attribute that to the cheap gears. Seems to be getting better with the break in.
