I'm about to change the fluid in my Trans and front and rear diff's.
Can someone please verify the oil weights and volumes are correct?

4.2 US Qts

Rear Diff
0.8 US Qts

...and the trans and front diff share the same oil correct?

Also, the FSM calls for "Fluid Packing" on the threads for the rear diff drain plugs.
What should I use?

sound about right, drain fill tranny twice , drain into gal jug then you know how much you got out each time, 1/2 in rachet fits rear diff, bottom drains it top plug fills it ,

no need to drain and fill twice on a manual trans, once will do it just fine. and when you do the rear diff, remove the fill plug FIRST. you don't want to drain it and then find out you can't fill it.
