I went to check the fluid in my front diff today. The level was good but the oil was filled with small metal fillings and was a gray color. What do you think I will need to replace? I checked my rear diff and it was about a half a quart low. Do you think that hurt it? Thanks.

if u have metal shavings come out when u stick your finger in, u need to check that out to see how bad its messed up. im not sure if half a quart low will hurt, but make sure it didnt just incase.
