Install questions for new diff covers
I got two new diff covers (front and rear).
These are both pressed covers. The mounting surface is smooth on both covers.
The D30 cover came with a gasket. The C8.25 cover did not.
Should I use a gasket on both covers? Should I use some type of sealer goop? Like Permatex maybe? Should I use a gasket and sealer goop?
The covers will be used for DD and trails. The might bump some rocks or stumps.
I will be using synthetic diff oil, which I've heard is more prone to leaking.
Please advise on best way to install covers for a good seal with no leaks.
