    Howdy y'all.

    Planning on doing the ECGS needle bearing replacement in the next month or so when I install my lift kit.

    Couple years ago Advanced Auto accidentally sent me an entire case (12qts) of Valvoline SynPower SAE 75W-90 Full Synthetic Gear Oil when I ordered a couple qts for my Subie. Needless to say I still have a ton of this leftover.

    Pretty sure this is the correct weight... is this stuff ok to run? Truck only has ~4k miles on it. Can I just top it off or should I try and drain and refill?

    If it’s the correct weight then why not?
