Question Rear end was overfilled by 1/2 qt like 2011s

So I have 37k miles on my truck and changed the rear, front, and transfer case oils this weekend. When I unscrewed the top drain plug on the rear, about 1/2 qt came out. So it appears they are still overfilling them just like they did for the fix in 2011. I jacked up one side of the rear end and was able to get in another 1/3 qt so I got 2.3 qts back in. Does anyone know if there is a special tool the dealer has to pump in fluid through the breather hose on top of the rear? I'd like to order it for the future if it exists! How are all of you guys getting in the extra amount? Jacking one side like me?
