Question about Chevrolet S 10
You never want to remove it completely.
There is supposed to .006 to .010" backlash.
Assuming you have removed the CV joints and seals, and the pinion is at the right depth, etc., then you turn the threaded adjuster rings on both sides, in order to move the ring gear closer or further from the pinion.
The distance between them should not change, so if you move the left on in, you need to move the right one out the same fraction of a turn or more.
To be sure of a good mesh, apply prussian blue to the pinion and watch the transfer marks to see they are centered and full length.
More detail here:
But make sure no bearing is going bad first, because then trying to adjust anything will only make it worse. Check endplay on pinion.
