24k service

Just a note to all. Rear drive oil was pristine when changed at 24k as well as transmission. Makes me think that 6k intervals w/ synthetic oil may be to frequent. Will still change just to keep an eye on the rear drive.Probably run trans at least 12k.

Re: 24k service

I do trans & FD @ 12K and it's fairly clean every time.

Re: 24k service

Wow, I've been throwing $$ away. I've been changing every 3,000, but as you mentioned, part of the reason is to check the rear and when I do 1 I do all three.
