gear oil for sm465

My transmission and transfer case are leaking pretty bad and it looks as though the previous owner had put atf oil in it. What kind of gear oil should I be using, will this stop the leaks, is synthetic a good choice, etc? Thanks for all your info!

Re: gear oil for sm465

the tranny is suposed to have 80w-90 gear oil, the transfercase takes dexronII ATF.

I doubt the oil is whats causeing the leaks, I wouldnt be suprised if its leaking where the transfercase and tranny are bolted together

IF ITS GOT WHEELS OR A SKIRT YOU CANT AFFORD IT

Synthetic oil can increase leakage, if up until now you have been using regular oil.

My truck ain't leaking oil it's marking it's territory!
