Diff Lube is Cheap

Brother of The Benz, mikef
My 1987 300E with 179,500 miles has had the diferential gear lube changed once a year since new.
No gear noise or seal leaks.
Red Line Products are the best on the market. If I had started with that oil I would still be using it.
But I didn't so here is the way I do mine.
I use gear lube 90w and add 8 ounces of gear-moly to one gallon of gear oil(grease in some groups).
To remove the plugs using special allen wrenches, Auto-Zone has a 1/2" 3 socket set, H12,H14,H17 sizes for about $7.00 the set.
Ofcourse you would remove the plugs in the proper sequence.
After you've done it the first time you too will do it every year.
