If it's the same as my '04 H6, it's a T70.

I had to look all over town for a T70 for my '07 XT. They are VERY difficult to locate - most stores only carry the T50 and smaller. Harbor Freight has a very affordable impact set which ought to be available in their stores:

It's always good to figure this stuff out before you get the car up in the air.....

Got mine at Advanced Auto Parts for about 3 bucks i think. T70 should be it.

I'm almost glad I don't have a Harbor Freight nearby. I could see a significant portion of my paychecks going directly to them .

I haven't changed my front diff. fluid yet, so that set looks good for when I do. It looks really clean on the stick so I haven't been in a hurry to do it.

Thnx..

Would have responded sooner, but I'm not getting e-mail notice of replies. Guess I need to check my settings again.
I appreciate the responses and info very much.

John: Lucky I had an allen that worked. That booger was some kinda tight.

jp1203: I just changed mine at 5500 miles, the front was clean with metal particles on the magnet of the plug. The rear was terrible looking, dark black with more metal particles than the front. Maybe the coloring was an extra additive (Molyb) from the factory. Honda does that to the rear drives on their 1800 Goldwings.

I did my rear diff oil not too long ago, and it wasn't terrible but it was definitely a little darker than the new stuff. It may have been changed before, but I don't know for sure. The front looks clear on the dipstick, but I haven't changed it yet to know for sure.

In case someone else out there is looking for one, my local Advance did not have a T70, Harbor wants $30 for the set that comes with a T70, and my local Autozone had one for $6.
