    I changed mine when I did my springs. I dropped the rear of the IRS so getting to the plug was easy. I can't imagine trying to unscrew the plug with everything in place nevermind the brace.

    I suck it out and pump back in through the filler plug.....no need to touch the brace, but I retorque the bolts

    when I eventually put my spare, fresh diff in I'll have a drain plug to use

    as djtyau said, it's easy with IRS down but I did it once without......now it's part of my winter ritual to pull catback & drop rear of IRS to change lube and fuel filter and inspect/clean everything up, including exhaust
