So I'm rounding up the parts to do rear brakes/axles bearing/seals on my 94 CVPI.

After doing a search, I'm a little unsure how much royal purple rear gear lube to buy.

I'm guessing about 3 quarts? For those that have done this before how much gear oil does it take to do the basic axle bearing R/R?

At $12 a quart I don't want to buy to much....

Yup, buy three. You will use just a little over 2. At least my rear axle did..

Mine only took like 1 3/4 qt to fill up, make a trip out for oil and some rtv too.

Just make sure the car is level when you fill the rear axle

96blu - did you fill the rear diff with it sloped on an angle (ie backed up on ramps) ?

Since the trac-lok diffs are larger and displace more fluid, LSD rear diffs will take a little less than the open diff rear ends.

Yea, didnt think of that, and no i didnt put the tracloc in.
Not only was it on ramps, but also a slant in the driveway.
you think theres enough oil in there, just under 2 quarts? im sure its fine.
heres the angle

that is probably the difference then, i did my gear oil change with the wheels on the ground, and a full tank of gas, the bruises on the shoulders were fun the next day.

Well got it done on Saturday.
I bought 3 of the quart bottles of Royal purple 75/140 synthetic. It took a little over 2 quarts... I used about %20 of the third bottle.
I had the car on a lift when I filled it so it should have been very close to level, and this is a tracloc rear end.

This car has almost 152k on it now and was still working on the original brake job..... most of my driving has been I-70.

New bearing/seals/fluid (also good used axles from the bone yard) along with new parking brake shoes (toughest part of the whole deal)
new rotors and pads and a couple of almost new tires I found at the bone yard when getting the axles.

I also did a front brake job with new rotors and new pads, and an oil change.

I went with the PCF pads as recommended by several here on this site. The price is certainly right (67.88 out the door for both front and rear.) I was going to use Wagner thermo quites but they would have run $120 for front and rear. I have used the wagners on other vehicle with mixed feelings. They seem okay, but for the money I don't notice that much difference in braking performance.

So far these pads seem to be doing alright. I don't think they are quite as good as the factory pads( factory fronts are no longer available according to Ford.) So will see how they do. BTW I went with the cheaper rotors from O'reillys as I have have had good luck with them for the price. The wagner rotors are over twice as much and I haven't noticed any real difference in the vehicles I have used them on in the past. Of course YMMV, but wanted to give an after action report. It sure is nice to be cruising to work in my 94P71 again. I love this Car....
