Question on setting up a 9" third member..

Im looking at getting a Strange 9" third from a guy, its new just several years old, but its got a spool in it along with 4.56's. If I were to remove the spool and ring gear, replacing it with a detroit and the same ring gear, would there be any need to mess with the pinion (ie re-shim it) or would it be fine to leave alone? I assume since the same ring gear thats currently set-up properly in it is going back in that I would be ok to just re-set the backlash.

Am I correct in saying so? Never messed with a 9 before.
