CHECKING DISTANCE (CD)
Should be set within about 0.002" of spec (etched on the face of the pinion gear) and is adjusted by placing shims behind the rear pinion bearing (or sometimes between the bearing race and case). Note that some manufacturers do not always machine their carrier bearing caps on exact center, but the Toyota ones I have worked on all seem to be machined on center. This helps greatly when wanting to measure checking distance, as the measurements can then be taken off the carrier bearing centerline with the bearing cap removed.

Hope it helps, Brian
