I believe any gear lube will suffice. Most people use SAE 80/90.

My question is: What gear lube are people using if they have a Detroit soft-locker?

Please bear in mind that if you are going to replace the oil in the rear axle and the rear axle is fitted with the factory Trac Lok LSD, you will need to add a friction modifier to the oil.
