What to use to 'suck out' diff fluid
OK so it's time to change the fluid in both my front and rear differentials.. the specs on my truck are in my sig and I noticed while looking through the forum it's easier to "suck" the old fluid out of the fill holes...
I spent time today got a breaker bar and got both plugs off the front and rear, but couldn't for the life of me figure out how/what to get the fluid out with, so i ended up just cleaning the plug and topping (very little needed) with the new Lucas 80W-90 i bought today to do this with.
What i noticed seemed to be that the little siphon thing I got from Harbor Freight couldn't get in the hole and go anywhere to get any fluid.. i think the biggest issue with the rear is that as soon as i remove the fill plug you see gears, no room :( SO what do you use to drain it with because honestly I don't want to take covers off and open up another can of worms if I cant get it sealed correctly when I put a new one on..
