I have to start hanging out over there. I definately could use a hand or two modding my ex. Especially with this body lift I am trying to get on. Keep putting it off since I have no help :(

I could do a day run to the Dunes. It is not a really expensive trip there.

Oh, I have the body lift on and my tires. I just need to get the rear differential on now, I just got it in the mail from summitt. I just don't know once I take the old one off how to refill the new one since there is no hole.

There is a hole. If you are looking at the rear end from the front (the side where the drive shaft attaches to) on the upper right hand side of the diff there is a plug. You will need a 3/8's extension and a ratchet or breaker bar. Fill till some runs out and you are done.

I was looking at the clear gearz install and the pumpkin is only half full. If I fill it till some comes out won't mine be too full?

ford recommends 75w-140...but its gettin harder to find so 80w-140 is readily available. oi would also buy a limited slip addative too.

Haven't seen you on here in awhile, guess we been missing each other. Will any autoparts place have the limited slip additive?

You could go with synthetic fluid. It has the same additives as the limited slip additive does and it extends the intervals you need to change the fluid.
