Hey Man,
I wish i could tell you something better but from what i have heard you may just wanna get a new gear. If you do, get one from ford racing.
I just had a mustang shop put a 410 in mine and had the same issue. at 1st they tried to tell me that there was nothing wrong. So I spoke with a buddy whos been racing for about 20 yrs and he told me it cause they didn't use the tool to make sure the shims, spacing, and depth were set correctly. I took it back again and told them what he told me and advised them that they could redo it our I could have someone else do it and send them the bill. After they pulled it apart and used the tool it was perfect. Although, from what I have heard from guys who tried to use after market ring n pinions all had bad luck with them if they were not set up right the first time because it causes a wear pattern because the metal is not as hard as the ones from ford racing.
