According the 2003 FSM, the rotational torque for the differential carrier (axles not installed) should add 7-11 ft/lbs to the torque for the pinion shaft alone. With new
bearings, the pinion shaft torque should be 20-35 in/lbs. (Not
6 in/lbs.) 10-20 in/lbs with original bearings.

Then you might want to consult the FSM. It's amazing the sort of useful and accurate information you can find there.
