Rear Diff Oil level?

I remember reading somewhere - but cant find the thread or link. My rear Diff is at an angle (not level) - i suppose because of the PO trying to get the pinion angle right with the RE 3.5 lift. Anyways, since it is a bit tilted, wouldn't that mean there could have been less gear oil put in since the fill hole (in my case a rubber plug) is lower? I can swear i read where someone jacked up the rear end to make it higher so they could get more oil in..? What say you?

i know my 8.8 is at a angle, but the fill plug is on the opposite side of the diff, near where the pinion is, but i just filled until i felt it had enough, it took over a gallon! but for the 35 and being on the other side, if you wanted to do something i would jack the right rear tire up and angle the vehicle that way then add more.

You can search the specs in google as to how much fluid it should hold from the factory

Clever... And if you install the elbow with the cover off you can trim / grind just right so that it doesn't hit the stock Rubi locker's air tube. If you have that kind of problem.
