    Rear axle service

    I was looking around and have not seen it yet.

    Can I vacuum out the old fluid and replace it that way? Instead of popping the rear cover.

    Also what is the most common stuff to run it with and where do I get it? I seen people say different things about what they run.

    I would pop the cover so you can also inspect the gears to make sure everything looks good and there are no chunks floating around.
    Personaly i use Rp with Gm Additive.

    Could use a hand vac pump (what I use to get fluid in) but like the others said, good to remove cover and clean with brake fluid.
