Not much material needed to be removed. Maybe .02" from each.
I purchased a second stock differential so I could have the PG installed before I even started the project.
That way the only thing required would be swapping the ring gear from my stock diff onto the one with the PG installed.
Also, about holding the ring gear in the vise: that ring gear is a beast. Holding it in the vise for a few minutes won't hurt it at all.
