Sounds like you need to take 2 pry bars and walk it out. Try prying on the ring gear bolts one bar on top & one @ the bottom against the case.

I dont think I do need a dial indicater. I will be helping Ryan put it back together and he has one. Ryan has been a Huge help to me. He is a true Asset to the club.

I ended up using the "rag method" crossed with some prying with a jack handle.

Ryan is a great asset...your D30 will be in very capable hands! I will bring the spreader in case you need it...it makes it a lot easier to get the carrier back in, especially with the shims.
