Ok so I am ready to buy the supporting parts for my E39 M5 LSD + clutch pack retrofit on my E46 M3. Also plan to add a 4.10 R&P. I read through all of the pages on this thread but I could not find a specific parts list for E46 M3 for the complete swap and refresh/supporting parts. This is what I've gathered:

x1 210mm E46 M3 casing
x1 E39 M5 or similar LSD

Timken inner pinion bearing - HM803149
Timken inner pinion race - HM803110
Timken outer pinion bearing - HM89448
Timken outer pinion race - HM89410
Timken carrier bearing (X2) - JLM104948
Timken carrier race (X2) - JLM104910

x2 crush sleeves 33121204657
X1 locking ring 33121205138
x1 pinion seal 33121213949
x2 carrier seals 33107510289
x2 o-rings for the flange 33111214144
x10 ring gear bolts 33132227347
x2 dust covers 33122283079
x2 dust covers 33137840562

Axle stubs: "m3 3.2 e36, e34 210 axles (except m5)"

Gasket seal Loctite 5970
Diff Oil (any recommendations?)

Anything else I need? I have a short rebuild tine for my next event so would like to make sure I have absolutely everything.

Also as for the preload, I found this setting from someone who did a 4.10 rebuild for E46 M3 GKN Viscolok. Can I simply use the same settings?

Carrier Preload 15-20 inch pounds
Pinion preload 15-20 inch pounds
Backlash .0033"-.00498" measured in thousandths.
That looks right. I have a set of REM polished bearings and races if you're interested.
