I use 75-140 I get from work, its a syn lube........good chit and its free.

I change gears pretty often so its changed pretty often, always looks new.................its the same lube used in all the truck diffs at work, honestly they see more load than the car does.................and heat.

Gears only last a few years for us and we change the fluid then, so I would say.....every couple of years. LOL!

Oh and we use 75w-90 full synthetic.

Damn, I'd have been changing it 7 or 8 times a year when I raced every weekend. I usually run it till the gear breaks! Very Happy

I usually change engine oil at 35-40 passes.

Peace of mind I guess. If I can't afford gear lube then I'm selling out.

Red line High Shock 75-90wt. Synthetic, and micro shock particles cushion ring & pinion. I use it in my toploaders as well, great stuff. I only change it when I change ratios, maybe once a year.
