Hey guys so today I noticed when I left my car in the garage and moved it that there was some leak stains on the floor. Looked under and its all wet on the pumping and exhaust pipes. Is it an easy fix? Anything I can do meanwhile or do I have to open it up and fix it? Thanks

No easy way to do it...
Pull both halfshafts, unbolt driveshaft, unbolt diff cover bolts to irs frame, unbolt lower irs cradle,.unbolt front diff bolts and remove.

Drop diff from irs frame and unbolt housing bolts. Drain diff fluid and scrape all material from cover and diff. Apply new copper rtv to diff cover and bolt back to housing.

Reassemble diff to irs, let set overnight and add fluid (2qt 75w140 fluid and 8oz friction modifier.

Would be perfect time to upgrade your diff cover or add a diff brace. Also good time to upgrade diff bushings.

Thanks for the reply low! I will be doing this on Monday so i can get a start on it. How long does it take to do? And how much is it for a diff brace? They sell em on AM? And did it start leaking because of my driving? Or is it just because over time

$150 or so for the brace, alot cheaper than a new diff cover. Billetflow is the one I recommend
