gear fluid and coolant change question

I am replacing my gear lube this weekend in my 2007 Compass. I bought 4 qts just in case but feel I wont need them all. my question is does anyone off hand know what size sockets, allen head bits or whatever size or type of tools I need for the drain and fill holes? I have to get my tool from my shop and dont feel like carting home more than I need, they get heavy.
Also I am going to drain and fill my radiator just to exchange some cuz I dont know when it was lst done (bought it last August and driven 4K miles and has 84K, this question is, is there a drain at the bottom of the radiator to easily drain the coolant?

Thank you

Make sure you use the correct coolant,any coolant with "universal" or "all makes/models" is the wrong stuff.

Only MOPAR coolant,Zerex GO5,or Ford's Premium Gold.Those are the onl;y correct coolants for your vehicle,all others are dexacool clones.
