crush sleeve on the pinion is fukered need to replace as well as bearing....

you might get away with retorqe but I doubt it
and yes you will need to set up the gears...

you will have to change the BEARING AND CRUSH SLEAVE AND NUT don't just try to do the bearing and reuse the old nut your just asking for trouble if you do.
