Oil capacity D30 - D44

I have aftermarket diff covers. Fill holes located higher than stock. After much research on 'net still no conclusive info on oil capacity on diffs. D30 open. D44 Trutrac. Anyone know how much each holds?

Someone correct me if im wrong, but you should fill it up higher since the aftermarket cover will give you that extra capacity, if anything thr more fluid added will help out giving better protection and heat dissipation, similar to adding a larger oil pan to add more engine oil.

Overfilling is bad. Blow out oil seals. Filler hole now is too high to use that as gauge. What I'm looking for is simply the recommended oil capacity for each
