Differential oil

Hey guys Im redoing my rear diff seal, and changing the fluid to synthetic. How much oil do I need for each axle?

4 quarts sounds about right. For diffs like a Dana 30 or 35 you will want to make certain that you fill them until the oil runs out of the plug hole.

Good Luck!

If i remember correctly on my 88 Dana35 i used 1 and 1/4 quarts to fill each diff. So a total of 3 quarts and you should have around 1/2 a quart left. You should just fill until it seeps out the fill hole but i think that is around what i used.

I own a Jeep, it's red and has big tires
