All I did was remove the ring gear from the old diff & attached it to the torsen & then clean the bolts a little & add a little loc tite to each bolt & tighten them & checked again. Put your new trigger wheel on the diff & then press the carrier bearings on the diff. What could be easier? Oh torque the ring gear bolts to 65lbs & criss cross when you tighten them. Clean both sides of the case & use a plastic razor blade= you don't want to nick either side of the case. Grab some rtv & spread it around w/ your finger, bolt it up & then zip it down. Since you have the cradle out great time to upgrade your front sway bar too. I just cleaned & regreased my eibach bar & bushings.
