The process is very straightforward.
Two crush gaskets, part number 12157-10010 (you can re-use the old ones, but it's better to replace)
4 quarts of 75w90 gear oil (you'll only use 3.1 to 3.12 quarts)
Torque wrench set to 36LB/Feet
24mm (a 15/16 socket also works)
About 40 minutes of time
Use the 24mm socket to remove the fill plug (the higher one on the differential case). Clean it off.
Position your drain pan under the drain plug and remove the drain plug using the same socket.
Give the rear differential case 20-30 minutes to drain completely.
The drain plug is magnetic, designed to attract metal shavings from the rear differential gears. Clean it well.
Remove the old, flattened crush gaskets, and replace them with new ones. Side note: the common consensus is that it doesn't matter which way the gaskets face.
Put the drain plug back onto the rear differential case. Hand tighten, then torque to 36LB/Feet
Squeeze just over 3 quarts of 75w90 gear oil into the fill hole.
Put the fill plug back onto the rear differential case. Hand tighten, then torque to 36LB/Feet.
Clean up your mess, you slob. You're done.
