This is a great DIY! I am getting ready to remove my UUC RTAB's, I am tired of dropping the arms and re-greasing them to get rid of the squeeks. I have new M3 RTAB's and this issue of pre-loading is key. Please take a look at the figure from above I modified. Is the top of the bearing hub and the top of the carrier alignment tool in the same plane? It looks like it is in the pic and in the pdf posted above. If so, I think I can devise a method to get this lined up properly. Anyone know for sure?

The poly RTAB's will ride and handle just fine and are easy to install. They really don't seem to have all that much more life than OEM. I got about 75K mi out of a set I bought from UUC. I had to pull them out and grease them every spring because they would squeak so much. I replaced them with M3 RTAB's this spring.
