Part of the problem is that I'm under a time crunch. I'm an Army officer about a week away from journeying to another installation, whereupon I turn around and deploy virtually upon my arrival. A crushing workload as of late and prepping for a move really impacted my progress, which is why I'm scurrying at the 11th hour to button up this project.

I ended up torquing the pinion flange to 80 ft-lbs. I know it's not optimal, but I'm afraid good enough for government work is where I'm at. The 190/260 driveshaft is in and fits perfectly. However, the bolts for the flex disc for the diff end are too long, so I'm going to have to stop into the local Fastenal in the morning since I don't think Home Depot sells 10.9 grade hardware.
I waited 45,000 miles to swap the diff so no worries there. Check out Ace or Orchard. Their metric Hardware section is better than Home Depot. I wouldn't worry about using 10.8 bolts. The flex disc is going to fail long before the bolts.
