ooh boy, you a dial indicator and some Prussian blue gear marking compound, actually yellow now. but, you will need to assemble the cage with those shims you took out to see where you are so you can get a starting point. the backlash should be .008-.0012. you use the marking compound to get your proper gear mesh pattern. you want the contact pattern at the toe of the gear , then under a load the pattern will move towards the heel of the tooth. but since you are just replacing the cage just do the checks, the backlash and gear tooth contact. then go from there if things are out of wack . you don't want to be changing the pattern once gears are worn in , as you will get a gear howl. its not like your starting from scratch replacing the crown and pinion. YOU need a manual to follow through the steps for differential setup.

ooh, I just realized that you don't have the differential cover off. you could measure the old cage width and compare with the replacement cage. if both are the same you should be ok .could measure with a large micrometer which you wont have. put those same shims in and go from there . might be able to reach in from pto hole to feel for backlash.
