Could I use a Mighty Vac and suck the fluid out?

Also, what type of fluid/oil do you recommend?
The diff oil is a full synthetic 75W-90 Hypoid gear oil. You will never get all the oil out with a suction system, pulling the side cover is the only way. The process is covered in the Bentley manual if you have access to one..............
