Level ground
Bottom bolt off
Oil comes out
Bottom bolt on
Big middle bolt off
Oil goes in
Fill till it drips out
Big bolt on

Castrol LSX 90

ps. it's gonna smell like s**t

Edit: if you want to "flush" it, just do it twice.
Edit 2: Not sure if LSX 90 is the right oil for a single spinner, but it is for the LSD diffs.

If your gunna flush it, it will need a 1/2 hour drive between dropping the oil out.....just filling it up and dropping it out will do squat.

Someone may correct me. But according to my Gregory's these are the recommended:

Differential Lubricant Type: SAE-90 Hypoid Gear Lubricant
Limited Slip Diff: SAE-90EP L.S.

I used Nulon 80W-140W Full synthetic oil in my beast. If you want to flush the old use either Metho or Kero, I used the Kero and left for a day.

You can use Image
Service Refill Capacity: 1.6 Litres.
