Tips & Tricks?

Hey everyone, is there any tips or tricks to installing gears in an 8.8?

I've got some 5.13's from Yukon w. master install kit & notched x-pin that I need to get in. So any help w. tools or anything to get them in properly would be greatly appreciated.

I guess if you don't know how to do it, it looks alot more difficult, and if you're a pro, then you can do it in a couple hours.
