Default Shops for diff fluid change for slammed cars?

Hey does everyone do their own rear differential fluid change themselves or anyone have a shop recommendation? I tried doing it once but found it was a pain trying to pump the fluid out.

Would like to find a place that I can take my s2k to, but I'm pretty slammed, a mr lube type place where you can just drive up seems ideal but that one also seemed overpriced last time I checked.

Pump fluid out of the diff? There's a drain bolt.

Or did you mean pumping the fluid out of the bottle?

It’s pretty easy as I have an electric pump. 30-45second to fill. I won’t do it any other way.

Source for for your fill pump?

The little bottle pumps work OK but after a bit of use the hose won't stay on the pump.

Sorry yeah I meant pumping it out of the bottle, I tried one of those manual hose pumps and I remember it being pretty ineffective.

Don't use the manual pumps, it takes like an hour to pump a thick liquid like differential oil. I use this whenever I do my transmission or differential oil: Mastercraft Drill Pump Kit | Canadian Tire

Literally takes 30 seconds to get all the fluid in. For $20, you can't go wrong.
