I have about a gallon on my truck and no diff or bearing issues. I do however take the extra time to shim both ring and pinion for the front and rear diffs. Hope this helps

All gear type diffs are pretty much the same. So what are your questions?

Shim from truck to truck will be different. You want just a tic of play - add shims on the correct side to accomplish this.

Start with two on left, one on right(always pushing the ring gear onto the pinion). Between the bulkhead bearing carrier and the outer race of the bearing.

Never had issues when shimmed this way. Tight is better than loose. (huh huh)

You will actually want it to be a little notchy when brand new. They will wear in and give you good life.
