Default 9" carrier gasket question

The 9" in the Bronco has been making a little whining noise for a few days so I unscrewed the fill plug and stuck my finger in there to check the fluid level, it's got a good level but it's the color of the fluid in my uncle's Scout. So I've gotta pull the carrier and replace the gasket cause it's leaking anyway and was wondering about the gasket for it, Advance Auto has it in stock for $4.99 or a Hi-Performance one for $8.99, they can't tell me what the difference in them is and the website doesn't say, Summit Racing has a gasket like what I want with steel eyelets and a steel core for $19.95+Ship, and JBG has 2, 1 is thick with a steel core but no eyelets, 1 is thin and the same way steel core no eyelets and they are $15 bux a piece(it'll be $27.03 to have one shipped to my door).

I'm leaning towards the summit racing one but won't have the money to get as I have no job yet, also does anyone know the weight of fluid for the rearend, I used 80W90 Lucas last time but would like to use a different brand and weight.

get the cheap gasket and some sealer
that expensive gasket is probably the Red Rubber re-useable gasket also most steel core gaskets are re-usable with a non-stick surface No sealer needed; its good to have if you change out the carrier often for gear ratio options
use the Black Sealer its made for a oil wet enviroment
and Brass Sealing Washers keep any oil from seeping out
ya gotta pull the axles out a little to get the carrier out, so be careful on the seals & bearing

80w90 Pennzoil is what I use in mine along with Auburn Gear friction additive 6oz.

How exactly do I pull the axles out a little? Just grab the tire and pull on one side at a time?

there are 4 bolts behind the axle flange, there is a hole between the wheel studs on the flange
you rotate that hole to line up on the 4 axle bolts
stick your socket in and loosen them up
slide the whole assembly including brakes out about 2 inches (watch brake lines & wheel cylinder)
careful no to ruin the gasket next to the axle housing (sometimes there made of copper and bend real easy)
if the carrier doesnt come out easy pull the axles out a little more

that carrier is HEAVY your not going to catch it with one hand, use a jack or let it do a controled fall onto pieces of wood built up to the correct level

dont let the heavy carrier get away from you, cause something will brake namely the pinion yoke (the thing the u-joint connects to) will get broken

here I did a 'How To' just for you
