    Welcome, new guy! How'd you get to 471 posts so quickly??

    A question, out of curiosity - if the previous owner had changed the trans and diff fluids at 90K'ish miles, what made you decide to change them again at 98K'ish miles? Don't see any harm in it, just wondered what your thought process was... Nice list!!

    Haha, it's easy it took me just a year and half

    I wasn't sure which fluid he used and I heard royal purple wasn't good for the gearbox and diff so I just changed it to red line just in case he went with royal purple

    Edit: and it did make gear shifting a bit better and sort of eliminated the whine I heard from the diff during slow speed U turns...

    Yup, just typing up all I did till now made me think, "damn, I've done quite a lot" haha... But I didn't take too many pictures while DIY'ing which is kinda sad... But I will from now on...
    Yeah I don't have all the photos of my maintenance either, but it's enough.

    Also, your signature still has a "[/SIZE]" showing up at the end of the photo.

    Good call. When in doubt, swap it out.
