ring and pinion change issue

i recently changed my ring n pinion from 3.73 (stock) to 4.56 i have 33" tires so the inner gears of this ratio will bring the drivetrain to stock running specs per conversion chart. so while setting my dept on the pinion n setting backlash i had a problem,the spider gears rolled of of the differential,so i brought it to a rear end specialist n they were saying they couldn't get the gears back in because you need a special tool to hold up the plates behind the spider gears,well on the way back i thought of a way to hold a gear pack up,i bought a threaded rod n 2 washers and cut the rod about 5 " long n i ran it thru to hold it up n then i held the other side of the spider gear pack by hand,slipped the drive shaft in n it rolled right back in,i dont know what special tool they say you need but i guess home depot carries it because i got it done,i had the diff, in n out about 5 times,figures on the last time going in this would happen,just make sure you pay attention to those gears because they can roll out easily if your rolling ur differential while installing,if anyone needs to see the video i made just hit me up n ill send it to ya,this lil problem jammed me up for a day...good luck
