Toyota 4cyl third question

I just recently had 5.29's installed in a typical toyota 8" third member. I want to install an aussie locker, can I do the job myself? I'm a decent mechanic and have a pretty wide assortment of tools, but no special measuring instruments to reset back lash or anything.
I've read the installation instructions and it seems pretty straight forward... I know I have to throw it back in and set the carrier bearing preload but am I missing anything else?

It is pretty simple. You will need to reset the backlash but that is a piece of cake.

so just set the carrier back in and get it set to 008 ? no need to mess with pinion shims or anything with the pinion since that was all done by the shop?

don't touch the pinion at all. Worst case is you might need to do a little grinding on the carrier to get both sides of the locker to fit in the hole. It's typical and doesn't take much. (safer on bearings if it's done removed from the diff.)

Cool, I bought a dial indicator so hopefully all goes well.
