    Hey dudes,

    I plan on changing all of my driveline fluids this weekend and just want to make sure I this oil will be good. Valvoline 75-90 "limited slip". My rear diff does not require an additive, but the back of the oil bottle reads "recommended for all hypoid differentials both limited slip and conventional". Will this oil be good to use in my transfer case and front diff as well? Its the closest thing to what my owners manual recommends that my local autoparts stores carry.

    Also, what are the torque specs on the transfer case and front diff bolts? I understand the rear diff bolts are 36 - just curious about the others.

    Thank you!

    I think you should be good. I hope so anyway, as I used Mobil 1 75-90ls in all my gears. The rear calls for 80-90 I think, but I couldnt find any around here.
