An aluminum race punch is important, as you don’t want to scar or damage the new races with a steel punch when you install them. One pinion race is installed on the gear side of the pinion opening, the other on the yoke side of the housing opening. The bearings will fit in the race, so be sure the concave opening is toward the diff cover and pinion yoke, respectively.
