    How much fluid does the 10 Bolt rear end hold? I have an 01 Camaro LS1.

    I always went with the general rule of fill it up until it starts to come out of the hole, then just let the excess drain out. Never been a problem with it at this point. :hs:

    same.

    but on my 7.625" 10bolt that was about 1.5 quarts with some spillage. So buy two, and you'll have some left over, me thinks.

    Tip... make sure the rear end fluid is warm. :-o

    Make sure to add GM limited slip to the EMPTY dif then start filling your rear end oil of choice. This was you are assured that the limited slip additive didn't spill out. I always used non synthetic with the stock rear end. (had a 94 Z28).
