seafoam in standard Diff prior to fluid change?

Ok, is this the worst idea I've had since posting pics of me in front of the white bird?

It sounds like a terrible idea, but on the other hand, it seems like a decent plan.

Thoughts?

I'll do is take the cover off. Fill a spray bottle with diesel and spray away. Idk how seafoam would do. There is t much it can really clean. The diesel is the better way to go IMO. And you can get a gallon for 4 bucks over a 10 can of seafoam

You don't want to do anything to reduce the viscosity of the gear oil in the differential.
Doing so can gall ( start to wear ) the gears and then you'd need a new differential.

There's nothing in there that needs to be cleaned because nothing has gotten dirty or contaminated in any way.
