Default Re: rear axle endplay

so i read somewhere that it could be shimmed to remove end-play. after a couple of attempts, it didn't seem to change anything. so today i pulled the bearing off and put on a new Timken SET10 tapered roller bearing, problem solved! the bearing i took off was a Bower 1579 roller bearing (not tapered) it was installed in 2009 before i got my press. i have no idea if the play was there from day one or has been getting worse all this time.
