    I have alway filled mine until it oozes out the fill plug . There is probably an actual amount in my book , but I have many miles on my axle doing it my way /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    Last time I bought 3 quarts of synthetic , and didn't use all of it . On my front axles , I just buy the antifreeze sized jug of regular and pour it into smaller containers to fill them with /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    Yup. A 10 bolt holds about 2 1/2 quarts of gear oil.
