Just went thru this last weekend. Hours and hours of second guessing the shims, only to go back to stock on the carrier shims, and close to stock on the pinion shim. When we originally tried the stock shims only, the pattern wasn't right, but when we went back to it magically things fell into place. Same thing might have happened to you.
If that doesn't work, the pattern says you need to adjust the pinion shim. That pattern should be more toward the middle of the gear, not out on the edges. We had the exact same symptom when setting up the rear as well, took out .003 when the pattern looked close, but it was binding and everything was perfect thereafter.
