I use an aerosol brake cleaner to flush mine out each time I have the diff cover off. It works really well because of the pressure and volume of cleaner that gets sprayed really helps to insure you're rinsing out all the metal particulates.

Getting Savvy...

When you have a choice, buy American.

Haha, I get it now, Ask Jerry, like Ask Jeeves. Ok I'm an idiot .

Any way Patrick, Just so you know, there are two kinds of brake cleaners that I have seen. I think one is chlorinated or something. I guess the one of them isn't sold in many places cause its harmful, but suposidly its the best to clean. I'm just going by what I've heard, so you know how that goes.

As Jerry said, they have pressure, and boy does it stick. Make sure your its well ventalated and you wear glasses. Its shoots everywhere and one good wiff of it is enough to make you hurl.

What the heck are you asking questions like this for anyway. Your like the XJ idol to all of us little guys.

Brake clean, a scraper, and some rags took all this crap out of my Dana 60.
