    Any tips on getting the foamy contaminated gear oil out of the diff? Most of it has drained out but some of the foamy crap is still sticking to the gears. Should I just refill it and then change it again soon?

    you can spray it out with brakecleaner and then let it sit for a couple of hours to dry out.then refill it again and it should be good.
