Vert paint progress, and a question...

So just got back from the guy who's painting my cars booth (had to drop off some more paint reducer) and i've got to say never loved my car more he's only done half the coats of paint, and will be doing the clear by the end of tonight or tomorrow. Also the cheap ebay hood everyone said was junk and wouldn't fit actually did fit pretty well (to my surprise, everyone scared me shitless making me think i made a very very bad purchase)! only thing is it had alot of prep work needed, so i give you that much! but overall after seeing it on the car i don't regret the purchase at all.
So here's my question (well asking for tips/advice rathar) i'm swapping in a rear end please feel free to chime in if you've got any experience with this! I've got a fox rear end set up with 5 lug and 3.73's so i'm going to swap it for my 4 lug orig.
Thanks in advance!

The rear itself will go right in. Do you have the correct speedo gear for those 3.73? The speedo wont read right without it.

Once you have the rear end in start the control arm bolts but dont tighten them completely, you will do that later. When the springs go in make sure the ends of the pigtail at the bottom face the same direction from side to side or the car will sit uneven.

The control arm bolts on the axle side get 70-100ft-lbs and the control arm bolts on the body side get 77-105ft-lbs. Torque them once the car is back on the ground. If you torque them while the axle is hanging free the bushings will bind. The driveshaft bolts get 40-56ft-lbs. Use a little threadlocker on them. Everything else (shocks, etc.) is pretty straight forward.
