I had zero issues with my PS cover. 3/8 drive socket fit no problem.

3/8"? Interesting.  The bolts that came with my cover had 1/2" heads.  If they were 3/8", I probably would have had just enough clearance.

3/8" drive bright socket. Where you using a 1/2" drive or a impact? Both? In other words I used a thin walled socket.

Not sure if its in the instructions but measure the fluid yer putting in to factory spec, the fill is higher on those = overfill... ask me how I learned that a few years ago...
I have no idea what I'm doing... but I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night.

  This!  around 1"-1.5" below the fill hole on those depending on your pinion angle  :wink:   zip tie works good as a dipstick...

Yes, either keep track of the amount of fluid and just add the capacity rated for the axle or fill to the bottom of the axle tubes, yes a tie wrap works well as a dip stick! :mrgreen:

I had the same question on the tera flex ones.....could only get a quart in rear,,,called eric he said to fill to factory specs through the top hole of the diff cover...pinion angle misleads you a bit..
