    Rear Diff

    How do i replace the rear diff fluid. Do I take it apart completely and clean it out then fill the 2 halves or is there a better way?

    Somebody's gotta throw a bone in...

    Not getting the "2 halves" reference. It seems like you are wanting to fill the diff housings (p/n 6880) with diff fluid when you should only be putting it in the diff carrier/cup (p/n 5381.) A bit of grease goes on the ring & pinion gears outside the diff cup.

While putting it all together make sure all the rubber/silicone gaskets are in good shape. Push the ones for the axle shafts into their slots then put the gear through it.
    This reply was referring to Revo diffs, but since the part is shared on the two platforms, it is valid here too.
    Why would you not want to replace the old fluid?
