    Did this today, ended up putting 1.5 Quarts in (not wanting to over fill and not being experienced to go against the owners manual)

    I ended up filling the dif up only to find that the drain gasket had fallen out.. had to drain and fill a 2nd time.. Kind of a pain in the ass but whatever.

    has anyone done this without a pump? I am doing those tomorrow and I was just wondering do the bottles not fit in there to fill it? Would I need to go buy the pump?

    You can put a hose in the end of the bottle. No the bottle doesn't really fit.

    Hose on the nipple of the bottle, hold bottle out from underneath truck, other end of hose in diff, and squeeze it in, it's to thick to run in.

    That might work if the hose is long enough. I didn't think there was very much space under there. The pump was $4.99 at the auto parts store. If I had to buy it every time, I would.

    Will this oil be good.
    Just noticed it says it has Limited slip modifier included.
    I have a 2012 with limited slip but doesn't call for the added LSD fluid.

    Yes.

    FWIW I've changed my front and rear 3 times so far and been using 85-140 as recommended by ECGS with no issues.
