yes and yes.

Make sure you fill the trans up correctly now. Then you will need to get a t70 torx to drain the front diff. You will want to "flush" the front dif by filling and then draining with gear oil a few times, and then fill to correct level.

+1 the diff drain plug will be a 21mm unless the transmission has be replaced with a factory reman in the last few years.
