Did my fluids last night in a 2007 escalade ext, and on a YouTube video I saw the guy with the same truck and he did:

Front diff fill plug 13 lb foot
Front diff drain plug 13 lb foot
Rear fill plug 13 lb foot
Rear diff cover case 13 lb ft


i used the same torque specs that he did but when i read online it seems like its 24lb ft for the drain and fill plug, and then 29lb ft for the rear cover bolts.

ive been driving around for a day or two and no leaks. i should probably torque it up to 24 and 29 if its supposed to be that high

If you used good RTV on a clean surface it won't leak, but that is a little low. You could possibly get a little seepage on the drain plug.

well i tightened up to 24 ft lbs for the plugs and the difference was minimal.
i barely applied any muscle and it clicked for 24. it was at 13 ft lbs before

is the difference between 13ft lbs and 24 ft lbs barely anything?

If it's not leaking you are good.

The plugs are a tapered pipe thread as far as I know so the torque ramps up quick.

The rear diff cover bolts, yes 30 lbs ft. The plug I just snug it but 24 lbs ft is the correct torque. Never had them leak using this
