I'm going to double check my dif cover, I could have sworn I saw a plug. If not, I guess I'll pull the cover. Just thinking ahead here, when removing the dif cover, would it be best to 'loosen' the bottom bolts to allow the oil to drain before attempting to rip the whole cover off at once, or is this not so easy with the RTV thats already on it?
Also, any suggestions in to lubricants for tight or rusted bolts? WD-40? Is there anything better?
The trucks under carriage is very rusty, I'm in CA, but this truck must have come from an eastern, or salty state before we purchased it. I had a mechanic bust a few bolt heads off trying to loosen them.
My other truck is a Toyota Tacoma...
