The gear oil is 75w140 front n rear. Itís kinda pricey. Youíll need the modifier if itís a stock LSD otherwise no worries, I have 3 bottles of it if u need one, u can have it for an Abe Lincoln ( mail )

I used grey oil resistant permelatex on mine and itís holding for the last year.

Just kidding, however, I'm really liking the Mag Hy-Tec cover.

I wonder if that has anything to do with the front inner axle dust seals failing on these trucks?

Thanks for the tip

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

Oh, it's an easier one of the jobs on our trucks, any vehicle really.
Couple cans of carb cleaner or brake clean to clean the mating surfaces and the bottom of the housing, after you scrape the junk out and your good. There will be junk in the bottom too. Dig around, there might be a magnet in the bottom

You may need front axle seals. The thing is, the front diff doesn't get the use the rear does. Unless you're in 4wd, the front is basically just a container for the fluid and isn't really any different than it sitting in a bottle some where. Now, if you are traveling in a lot of higher water areas and the seals aren't what they should be, it's also a water collector.

I did do those seals 2 years ago. Two winters ago, I put her in the heated shed and tore the front end apart and replaced the inner and outer seals and I forget what all I did. Iirc, it took me about 10 hours. I am no wrench and I went slow to be sure everything went back together.

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

do it and the tcase and trans
its not that bad of a way to spend a day off

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
