    Exclamation Rear Differential Oil Change Question

    Ok I will attempt to change my rear diff oil this weekend. Here is a list I had compiled. Let me know if I am missing anything.

    75w-90 Synthetic Gear Lubricant
    New Camaro 10 bolt Gasket
    Brake Cleaner

    Now I know someone says to use brake cleaner, but what do I have to clean? Also any suggestions will be appreciated.

    Generally the synthetic comes w/ the additive but you should check anyway. I have heard of people gaskets leaking, you might look into the "right stuff" it's a gasket maker that cures fairly quick.

    Some RTV Gasket maker, and i would reccomend a good putty knife or a small wire wheel that attaches to a drill.
    Makes the old gasket removal alot easier..
