What type and viscosity lube oil should I put in my differentials. I have a
Corporate 14 bolt in the back with a detroit locker and a Dana 44 up front
with a ARB air locker. I would like to change out the oil, but don't know
what kind to put in. I would like to use a synthetic, but I don't know what
range or brand.
Thanks for the help

I'd use whatever the factory put in. Synthetics are a waste of money. (At least
in the axles.. despite the hype, you won't live long enough to notice the
difference.) Your lockers are gear-type, not friction-plate type, and don't
need any friction modifiers.
Jerk? This guy was completely rude to me. Sorry I didn't see it post the
first time, it never showed up so I posted again thinking I did something
wrong. Then this asshole goes and tells me how inconsiderate I was for
posting twice. I thought the purpose of these newsgroups is to help others
out. Sorry if I don't know everything.
But I do appreciate the help from those that offer it. It's unfortunate
there are those out there who are too busy finding peoples mistakes.

Don't worry about it....... there are a lot of folks around here
who act before they think. Sometimes things get lost in the few words
posted here. I try to help here and there.... sometimes I'm wrong or
may have mis-understood the question. Like you say this forum is to
share information and help one-another. I try to refrain from making
judegments of others. Some folks are just learning about the
newsgroups and may not see the "way things work" before they post, but
thats not a big deal anyway.
