    diff oil ?

    Just took my front & rear diff apart to clean & inspect. On the inside unit, are you putting oil in there & on the ring & pinion or are you putting grease on the ring & pinion?

    diff fluid in the carrier and a light grease like white lithium on the ring and pinion.
    higher the weight fluid, the less the differential will diff
    Would you go flip my truck back over??

    I personally like a more "locked" feeling from my diffs, so I'll put bearing grease in my carrier.
