My understanding is that you can use most any 80w90 gear oil. But stay away from Mobil 1 Synthetic gear oils in these trannys. The high sulfur content in the gear oil apparently wrecks havoc on the gears. The Mobil 1 is OK in the crank case (engine oil) but if you call them up they will tell you not to use it in the tranny.
Alot of people use Redline Synthetic 75w90, but if you do some searching for transmission oils, you will find numerous threads on this subject.
