Default differential oil change

It may be a stupid question but how do I change the oil in the differential?What do I have to remove to drain the oil out of it? I already have the oil 75-90 royal purple gear oil. Can someone show me a picture of what i need to remove. Thanks

I don't have a picture but on the back their are two hex head plugs in it, I think they're 17mm, remove the top one first, then the bottom one and wait for all the fluid to drain out, then put the bottom plug back in. then put the new fluid in the top hole until it starts coming out and plug it, I'd recommend getting a suction gun to suck the fluid out of the container and put it in the diff

yea, gear oil is nasty. I have some redline sitting aside waiting for me to get off my ass. Needed to get the friction modifier stuff for the LSD. Mine is getting weak, I hope it breathes some new life into it
