well, you should really drain all the old oil out, since you will have it out from under the truck and easily handled anyway. Also, I like to add a little Lucas oil stabilizer to the oil too, just a little extra protection for a part that does alot of work. As far as the lubricant goes, I have found that good ol 80W90 does just fine. Let me know if this helps :)

SOURCE: what kind of gear oil is recommended in the rear

There is a Valvoline synthetic blend of 80w-90 that should be fine to use. If you are in a colder climate, you might want to use the 75w-80.

Where can I find the inlet to poor gear box oil in to?

Depends on the make year and model, Engine size and transmission type and if it's 4wheel drive or not. Gear oil can possiblt go in the front rear end the rear rear end, The transfer case, The manual transmission. Some units don't use gear oil. Some manual steering gear boxes use gear oil too. Most all gears boxes don't have a way to pour the oil in as they have level plugs in the side at the normal fluid level. These plugs are located on the sides and they frequently can be turned with a 3/8 in drive ratchet extension. If the oil comes out or is just inside the hole with the vehical parked leavel then it's full. Yes they also have drain plugs and they frequently have the same kind and size of plug on the bottom as on the side.

you can use the oil for the towing package in either rear end, but what they want to know is if the rear end is posi track. to find out jack up the back of the jeep put the transmission in neutral and turn one of the rear wheel if the wheel on the other side turns in the same direction that you are turning the wheel then you have posi track if the wheel on the other side turns backwards the you don't. but like i said you can use the towing oil in either rear end when in dought use the towing oil.

How do you get gear oil in rear end

like all rear axels, their is a drain plugg sometimes at the bottom but the top one is for refill. usually, a 3/8 socket wrench is used directly in the plug. turn counter-clockwise to unscrew it and fill with appropriate gear oil (80w90)

Clanging noise rear and rear don't pull

The axle probably lost a keeper ring on the inside of the differential and the pieces may be going through the differential and ring&pinion gearing making the noises you hear. You will need to drain the oil out, find the broken pieces, and inspect all gearing for broken/damaged teeth, and for any noisy bearings. Flush the case out with cleaning solvent. Re-insert the loose axle after cleaning and inspecting it well--especially the interior end. Replace the keeper (new) on the axle end inside the differential spider gearing. Inspect the brakes on the loose axle side for any oil deposits and for any damage that might have been caused when the axle came out. If the differential is badly damaged, it might be cheaper to find another rear end in a wrecking yard. Hope this helps!
