Yoke removal --- need tips

My friends 2001 4x4 drw needs his driveshaft balanced and u joints replaced. we have removed the drive shaft and are about to remove the rear dif yoke. The nut is 1 7/8, the torque is 597 - 677nm. Not sure if the nut needs to be replaced. I am planning to replace u braces that hold the u joints at the yoke as well as the 4 bolts.

Am I missing something?

You shouldn't need to remove the yoke to balance the shaft. Just replace the straps and bolts when you replace the universal. If you do pull the yoke, you should use a new pinion nut, they are generally one time use.
