Front and Rear Diff Fluid Change

I am going to change the fluid in the front and rear diff this week, since I am right at 100K miles. Does anyone knoe off hand how much fluid I need? Can I use the same in the front diff as I do the rear?

$31.26 a quart? WOW! I thought Royal Purple was bad at $18 a quart....

Anyway, the answer is no. You dont need to add additives.
