    Use 75W140 if you want enhanced protection when the diff heats up from wheelspin on ice, burnouts, etc. :D Chosing 75W140 will limit your brand options to 2-3 - I've seen only Quaker State and Lucas in stores; both are good. Note Quaker State may be labeled as Pennzoil in some markets, as both are brands from Shell.

    I'm a big fan of the Amsoil severe gear 75w140, but I think you will have to add an LSD additive with it.

    I'd opt for synthetic as I can not stand the smell of the stuff.
    Synthetic should last longer under normal conditions.
    That way you don't have to smell that stuff as often.....
    At least that's I'm doing....lol
