Which oil for Detroit Tru-Tracs?

Changing oil today since axle rebuild (500 mi). The Eaton Rep told me to use non-synthetic but the my mechanic used a 75w90 full synthetic when he filled her up last. It has no whines or noises of any kind this far so I'm kind e inclined to use the better oil. What do you guys think?

I used some Lucas gear oil in mine, I believe it was 75w90. I'll put that in with my Detroit Locker as well.

My Detroit's call for the oil originally used in that particular axle or service manual. I use 85w but I think synthetic would be fine maybe better.
