    I have a Dana 35. With a 4 in lift. With change of diff angle. Do I need to add more oil to make sure oil gets to pinion gear?

    That depends... did you do an SYE or did you do a T-case drop? Look at your diff and if its pointing upwards from your SYE then you need to over fill your diff a little for it to get uphill to your pinion bearings. I fill mine like normal till its just to the bottom of the fill hole, but I park on a steep hill and do it in my driveway. If your on flat ground fill it till it runs out good and plug it fast.
