If you have open diffs then regular gear lube should be just fine for the axles. If you have limited slip then you will need to pick up lube that has the additives for limited slip. It should say on the bottle. As for the trans, if you pull the inspection plug you can check to see if it runs gear lube (brownish and thick) too or trans fluid (trans fluid should be red an thin). I believe that it runs trans fluid. Just pick up a couple of quarts of auto trans fluid and you should be fine.

No owners manual? The diffs should use a 75w90 in both diffs unless towing then use a 75w110 or 75w140 in the rear. A good synthetic type gear oil will help. Reduced friction and will usually run up to 50F cooler more or less.

Changing out the diffs? Use www.lubelocker.com gaskets to make the job a more pleasant experience.

Will take about 4 quarts for drain and refill assuming you have an automatic. Use Dexron III only.
