When the fill plug is removed a very very small amount of fluid should ooze out, barely. If you pull the plug and it runs out it's overfilled. 1 3/4 is all mine have ever taken. As DLF stated when removing the axles the diff should loose very little or no fluid. Take a plastic bag and zip tie it over the holes, to prevent spilling it. Btw for what it's worth the one wheel method ftw. But since your doing mark lower arms anyway you'll have plenty of room to work with. You'll also need an alignment as soon as your done.
