Differential Bushings - Drain Fluid?

I just changed my differential fluid about a month ago to Royal Purple. I now have the rear cradle out to upgrade the complete suspension and bushings.

Should I drain the differential fluid again before removing it from the rear cradle or will it stay inside while I work the old bushings out?


thanks!

You'll have to drain it again, working on removing the steel bushing sleeves would be a nightmare while still in the cradle.
