Hey what's up guys. I'm needing to change the oil pan gasket on my 04 Yukon Denali. Any tips or tricks to make it easier?

If its 4wd/awd you have to pull differential out. Take off the crossmemeber under the pan. Might have to disconnect the steering linkages. I've done 1 I didn't have too. 3 I did.

Yeah I was looking at the pan the other day and trying to figure out if I had to drop the diff. I didn't even look at steering linkage. I can't tell if the oil pan is leaking or if the valve cover gaskets are just leaking that bad.

I just replaced the oil pan gasket on my 2001 back in March. Being that I have a 2wd, it wasn't terribly difficult. My only real obstacle was dropping the crossmember. Other than that, it was pretty straightforward.
