cool! i will pick up about 7(3 for the front, 4 for the rear) quarts Friday night.......is it alright if we change the rear fluid also? when they put the gears in the rear, they used regular oil and i want to switch to full synthetic......i am going to run full synthetic in the front also.....

Not sure on that but it would definitely put more lube out at the wheel bearings. More likely to leak at the axle seals there maybe?? Don't know if that's true or not. If it were WAY overfilled, I could definitely see it pushing fluid out the axle vent when conditions were just right.

Anyway, better to have the level a little too high than too low, IMO.

when i refilled it after the diff cover, the truck was sitting a slightly down hill(slopped driveway backed in).....i put almost 4 quarts in it that way, something like 3.75 quarts.......it didn't leak anywhere.........i will get 4 to put in it that way i know i will have enough.....if i get a little more than enough in it, then it should push it out through the vent tube....
