Re: what type of gl-5 should i run?
The hand pump is a good idea for the front diff. but with the rear spend $2.50 and get a new gasket at Checkers. There is one at 88th and Wadsworth, close to where you live. On the rear diff, I usually use "CopperCoat" gasket goo on both sides of the diff gasket, I have taken pretty bad hits on the diff cover and it doesn't leak. The front diff is another story, it is a PITA to pull off, you end up tearing apart the whole front drive line. That being said I did the entire front assembly in about 3 hours the other night. This is where the hand pump comes in handy until you put a plug in the bottom of the diff. I will let you know about my schedule, the rear takes about 1/2 hour from start to finish, and about the same for the front. Either way the work is pretty quick.
