4.10 gears.. With or without full kit?

Hi everybody. This will be first post and if you guys can help that would be awesome! Ok so I bought my first mustang a couple of months ago. It is a 2004 mustang GT automatic (more or less about 100,000 miles) that I bought at an auto auction (so I knew nothing of the previous owner or the cars history). Well it came with a CAI (k&n fipk2), flowmaster catback (specifically which one i do not know). The mods that I have done to it are just an accufab 75mm throttle body, c&l plenum, and a 91 race tune (I could not find 93 in my area). Now I want to keep this a daily driver with balls of course lol. So I think my next mod will be a set of 4.10 gears and they will be the ford racing gears. So this is where I need help. I have looked on the web but couldn't find an answer. I see they sell the gears but I can choose to buy just the ring and piñon or I can choose a full kit with gaskets and optional Traction-LOK Rebuild Kit w/ Carbon Discs. Would I be fine installing just the r&p, or should I go ahead n build it all up since they are going to be in there anyways? Any input would REALLY help me a lot. Btw money isn't an issue, but I live in an apartment building so I don't Really have anywhere to do it. I would rather have someone who knows how do, but I don't know any performance shops near me. Thanks!!

You'll be fine with just ring and pinion ..

When you take it to a shop they will let you know if any bearings or anything needs to be replaced
