    You could try heating it with a bearing heater. Once the bearing is heated, it will expand and just slip right on. The heater heats the inner race of the bearing, makes installing bearings childs play. Once it is cooled, it will lock itself on the diff. I know seating the pinion shaft in dry ice will also help installing the bearings. I have done it at work when installing bearings on to electric motors, or just have it pressed on. Which ever is easiest for you. :)
