I've been thinking about changing my diff fluid on the front and rear. I have 165k miles on the ticker and not sure if it's ever been done so it would mainly be a precautionary measure. I found somewhere online that the service interval for normal riving is around 100K so I just want to make sure all is well. Any suggestions when doing the fluid change?
do it and the tcase and trans
its not that bad of a way to spend a day off
It isnít bad. Take out the lowest bolt in the rear end and I think you can push the sealant thru and let it drain, unless I am confusing it with my F450. Make sure you get sealant that is made for gear oil, otherwise it will likely leak.

i am old school and a tad absesive...
i got my suction pump and pumped it all out through the hole then filled it with the supertech full synth from wall mart added the modifier and drove it for an oil change.
oh also changed the oil
then next oil change i pulled the cover and drained it and replaced it all with the good valvoline ful synth
replaced the t case fluid which had been filled with gear oil
wound up changing that twice too.
but when or if yohu take the diff covers off brake clean and a good putty knife and get the paper gasket and do gear oil sealant on that
i didnt really have to take the covers off after flushing with the new wal mart stuff it still lokked great...but... the only way to know that for sure it to just do it so, i did
two gallons of trans fluid and 8 bottles of valvoline and 6 supertech ran me about a hundred buck delivered to my door
no complaints... had to go to oreallies for the gasket as no one but me uses them
It's a friction modifier for the factory limited slip, posi, that some trucks came with. If you need it and don't use it, you'll ruin the clutches.
Some gear oil's have it in it already, but usually way more expensive than buying regular and just adding the few ounces that's needed
this wally world or any aut parts store carries the stuff
Texas needs to figure out its weather. This hot then cold then hot is getting old quick.
But on the bright side. It was a great day to replace all 4 ball joints in the driveway
better than my uneven mud and snow driveway for any of that stuff
so... finally got the cover constructed out of tarps for the trailer yesterday had to take my kids retarded friend to town and wound up finishing in the dark with a flashlight in my mpouth to see
but its done and woke up this morning to the first real snow of the year
timing is everything somtimes
