Post How much rear end grease?

Hey all.
I just cruised my Gremlin down the road about 1/4 mile and back and noticed 2 things.
1. There is a whinning noise in the rear end. I was told by one person that 2 quarts of rear grease is needed to fill it up and then by another that it takes 3 to 3.5 to fill it up. Is the whinning sound due to lack of grease?
2. I have play in the yoke. The part where the driveshaft hooks to the rear end. When I put it in gear it goes thump and moves. Should I be concerned?
Thanx, HG
