    yea for sure, I'm curious to see if I would notice a huge difference in performance like I did when I did the tranny fluid change.

    Just did my diff a few weeks ago. Dont really notice a difference but it is super easy to do. The bolt will be on there pretty snug

    Re: Transmission Fluid Change

    No prob, pics will be up. If there's any advise on the fluid change I'd appreciate it. I believe slip additive is required if I remember right. I'll be placing the whole order with my buddy at the GM dealership and I guess he'll know what is required.

    What I'm also curious about is why differential needs slip additive but transmission doesn't? or does it?

    Re: Transmission Fluid Change

    you only need a slip additive for you diff if you have the limited slip differential.. no additive is needed for the tranny, though you could put some if youd like
