You are not going to want to be retorquing the pinion nut. If you do so you will be changing the bearing preload on the pinion. Without the proper set up tools you will want to get the nut snug to the flange without crushing the crush sleeve making the preload tighter. Just be sure to use some thread locker and you will be good to go. If your pinion is really tight to turn when you are done thats when you have to worry. If it turns about the same as it did before you are fine. Not sure on the flange bolts but I have aways gave them a good and tight turn with some thread locker.
