You need to replace the secondary timing chains also, since they are the root cause of the problem.
The only shortcuts to this job is to use the ring gear stop tool as the TSB describes, this avoids having to remove the valve covers and intake manifold, saving a couple of hours of work.
It can be done with the engine in the vehicle, only the outer timing cover needs to be removed. Its very tight in space but possible.
I did this job on my 05, let me know if you need any help.
