Reinstalling my 8.8 rear end

Recommended Posts

Okay so I decided I want to paint my rear end because I hated looking at that rust on her. My question is when I reinstall it does anything need to be torqued down to specs? I had someone do it for $275 the last time and now there is no way I can afford to do that. Any input or suggestions is appreciated.

What type of fluids re needed to run this thing efficiently?


any friction fluids? what weight of oil is needed 75 80?



All info on fluid types & capacities can be found in the owners guide, towards the back. The diff. fluid

is synthetic, and not cheap.
