Trying to get the pinion bearings preload setup right using a solid spacer kit from Ratech. Right now I have all the shims (.542) from the kit on the pinion and have the nut to around 200ftlbs and the turning torque is 29inlbs. Am I right in thinking that I need more shims? I've seen turning torque values go from 14-16inlbs to 20-25inlbs with new bearings.

Yes, add.

Turning torque should be around 15-20 inch pounds.
