    Rear diff question

    So i changed the oil in the rear diff last weekend. The top bolt was a pain to get off, but an air impact gun helped a lot. My question is, do I have to worry about it leaking? I read you had to use some sealant or something, but i just cleaned and torqued the bolts to the spec in the service manual.

    I also like to scream at 7000RPMs in 1st gear...... and them slam it into reverse, sidestep the clutch, and do backwards 4-wheel burnouts while still moving forward.
    It's fun... try it

    I swiped a big can of antiseize at work 15 years ago and still have 1/2 of it. When we change gear oil on class 8 "big rigs" which have the same type threaded plug, we use antiseize on the threads and it works.
