A vital element in securing the ring gear to the carrier is high-strength (red) liquid threadlocker on the bolts. If the bolts come loose, the axle dies, simple as that. You'll need a vise big enough to hold the carrier so you can torque the bolts properly. If you use a press for the carrier bearings, you can clamp the carrier into the press and then torque the bolts.
