Dana 44 Rubicon differential fluid amount?

I need to know how much diff fluid to put in my 06 Dana 44 Rubicon. Axles. I have a g2 front axle cover and the last shop that filled my diffs over filled them and the diff shot fluid everywhere and I needed a toe. I have loomed up the info and some say 2 quarts Ans some say other stuff. I will be using synthetic fluid and I need to amount so I can do it myself. Also and additives? Thanks

No additives are needed and your D44 axles hold two quarts.

Smile axle fluid level

If i am not mistaken, the fluid level should be about one half inch below the filler hole. I could be wrong but that should get you close.

To the bottom of the fill hole for the stock cover is good. Only when a CV driveshaft has been installed will that change due to how the axle must be rotated to raise the pinion angle.

RCV axle shafts or RCV axles? Different axle shafts won't change how much gear lube is needed.
