Ok hello everyone quick question, I bought Valvoline hp 80w-90 gear oil is this good for the final drive? and after draining any old fluid is it a good idea to spray some carb or brake cleaner in there to get out any goop if any before i replace the oil ? first time i am doing this so i want to ask before i fudge something up lol thanks everyone
