pics inside 8.8

while trying to take a look inside my '99 8.8 rear my oil-catch devise spilled everywhere causing oil to be all over garage. I sprayed it out the best i could with the hose? was this the right thing to do?
Also take a look at the gears inside they look pretty good to me


and now there is no oil inside the 8.8- is it okay to store it this way with barely any oil inside? or should i buy some more tomorrow?

Re: pics inside 8.8

I woul put the cover back on just to keep stuff out of the case. But I think they can sit without oil on them and still be alright, they are shipped that wau right?

Re: pics inside 8.8

i believe just swaping axles will fix the abs problem (pita though to swap axles with abs) not sure on trac control... not sure how that works.

Re: pics inside 8.8

i think i decided on 3.73 b/c if i go blown down the road i still want the top speed and also if i resell the rear end its probably easier to get rid of it with 3.73's than 4.10's- looking at buying richmond gears- any opinions?
