How to set 12 bolt carrier bearing preload ?

Just got all the parts to put my 12 bolt rear back together. Did a bunch of reading and ordered the the Richmond gear DVD. Almost everything seems really clear EXCEPT how to preload the carrier bearings. I read one article that said you need a certain amount of shims ( .484 or .170 ) depending on rear and some just say you need SOME preload. What is the proper way ?

Thanks for the help !!
