The four point bearing that holds the shaft in place from moving to and away from the engine (pinion depth) sits on the shims. This bearing is then held on top of the shims by the retaining plate. This four point bearing is located on the shaft above the roller bearing if you are looking at it as if the pinion is below the roller bearing. The roller bearing takes the force side to side while the diff is getting pushed into the side cover . The four point takes care of the end to end pressure (pinion depth) as the gears are not straight cut
