In theory the pinion nut should not change the gear pattern at all, only the preload of the bearings. It uses the crush sleeve to do this as well as hold things where they need to be. So the nut wont really be torqued. Just put red lock tight and set to the correct bearing preload. Differentials without a crush sleeve use torque pinion nut.
