Default Front and rear differential fluid capacities

Can anyone tell me how much fluid I need to do a service in the front and rear differentials please?
I know the types and weights of fluids, but I can't find the capacities.
Thanks.
P.S it would help if the capacities are in liters.
Cheers.

In the Factory Serivce manual the Front IFS axle is 1.6L (56oz.) and the rear 9.25 is 2.1L (72oz.) I thought those were in the owners manual also. I just did mine using Royal Purple. It was cool because it was cheaper than Mobil 1 synthetic and had the limited slip additive in the bottle. My rear takes a lil more now that I installed my PML Diff cover (3 quarts).

Thanks for the help guys.
The fluid types are listed in the owners manual on pg333 but I can't for the life of me find the capacities in it?

I looked up the very same thing this weekend in my owners manual. It is an '05 but I found a chart near the back of the manual that listed all fluid capacities together. I got school tonite (be home late) but if I think of it, I'll try to find it again and tell you (hopefully) where to look if it's even in yours.
