Help with rear end lubricant (93 Tracker)

Decided to look up in my service manual (Actual GM manual) to see what lubricants were called for in the manual. The only thing stated was a GM P/N 12345836. Called my local auto parts store to see if they had a cross reference or anything that would tell me what to use. No luck. Then called the local Chevy dealer, no luck again they even said the p/n was no longer valid and that they had no idea what to use. All I know if that it is a synthetic fluid. The manual trans call for a syn [img]images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]thetic 75w-90 GL4, would the rear ends use the same?

Thanks..
Bill

Yes the GL4 (75-90 wt )will do nicely.
I can check the service man for the 91 if you want.

Re: Help with rear end lubricant (93 Tracker)

heather I have run the same dirt cheap oil in my diffs and transfer cases for years and havent had a problem yet, altho all my transfer cases do develop whines, so I wonder if a thicker oil would be better? Im about to start putting Lucas in my diffs t case and tranny...

For some reason, the Kick tranny is the only part of teh drivetrain that calls for synthetic. The TCase and diffs only require regular gear oil.
