I wouldn't attempt to "clean" it inside unless I had it all stripped down first.

Best bet for "flushing" - drain the oil, clean the magnetic plugs, fill with cheapo hypoid gear oil, give it about 500 miles, then drain, clean the mag plugs again, and refill with quality stuff.

Just read about the axles being off - if you really suspect some crud has got in there while it's been off the car then I'd strip it to clean it out.

With flushing you'll never be certain you've got every last bit of crud out.
