You do want to preload the diff bearing but they are preloaded from the factory. Most time putting new bearings in doesn't make a lot if difference because it is the same spec bearing and race as you took out. That's why the stock shim usually works. You can get away without a shop press if you have race drivers and a hammer( swing press). I would get the factor red sealant for the case halfs. That stuff works best.
