can a ford rearend have shims added to the gears in the middle of rearend to take out vibrating and excessive play

The integral rear axle is set up with shims. The shims used set pinion gear depth, ring gear backlash, and ultimately side bearing pre-load. Shims cannot normally be changed to attempt to make up for wear or some other type of failure.
