diif fluid change question

Ok, so I just changed the diff fluid in my front D30 today and it only took a little over a quart before it started to come out. Is this right? It seems like it not enough...Thank for your help!

Yup. Level with the fill hole on level ground. That's all it needs.

I got my information from a 99TJ FSM. I don't think there is much difference between D30's and for that matter 80W-90 and 75W-90.

non-synthetic 75w-90 or 80w-90 is both ok.
