ok, so I got a nice pattern so I began to install the pinion for the final time. I installed a new seal and a new crush sleeve but I got really worried when I started to screw the pinion nut. I was told that I should screw until I feel the crush sleeve crushes (it would rotate easier) and that it would take a lot of wrench torque until it crushes. So I started to screw the nut (really hard) but not until it crushed because the pinion got stuck (I couldnīt rotate the pinion). Is this normal and will the pressure release when it crushes?
