Rear diff plug

So my rear diff fill plug is a little boogered up and needs to be replaced. If I remember correctly only the lower one is magnetic? Does anyone know for sure? If they both are magnetic and same thread I guess I could just replace it with a drain plug. Other than not knowing for sure without removing them my other problem is I can't find a replacement fill plug anywhere or even a part #. I would like to have another on hand before I take any of them out. Any help would be appreciated.

I know these have a magnet in them but they will work just fine. Take y'er pick.

Oil-Drain Plugs at RallySportDirect.com

All right, where is the distributor cap? I need to find the #1 plug wire to hook up my SUN machine.

That's what I thought. Thanks y'all. Id still like to know a factory part # without having to take my lazy butt down to the dealership. The parts guys at mine are not very bright.

Just a follow up and reference for anyone in the future cause this plug is a sucker to find online without the part #. Big thanks to epictofer for helping me.
