    ok, so ive read thread upon thread of changing the oil in the rear diff, but seems that it all pertains to the LSD..

    i know all the steps to change it are all the same, and ive read on every of these threads saying that synthetics for the differential are bad, but cant really find anything on synthetics for non-LSDs...are they safe to use?

    if so, those of you that use synthetic in their non-LSDs, which brand do you use/recommend?

    Mobil 1 75w90 is great gear oil and is fine for a locker or open diff. Yes....you can use synthetic. I think its a good idea to do so.

    yea, im thinking of switching mine to synthetic then, but just to make sure, the non-LSDs dont need to be changed every 30k miles right? how often does it need to be changed?

    Yeah....30k is recommended interval for service......more often if you tow or off-road a lot.
