Smile what weight rear axle lube???

hey all, my buddy has a 2006 mustang gt auto and we are puttting 4.10s into his car next weekend. i want to be sure that i am getting the right weight lube for doing so. i already have the friction modifier, but was unsure of which weight to go with. my 97 gt takes 80-90, but looking at threads on this site i have found 75-140 or 75-90??? any idea, i found mine in the owners manual but i am unsure if he got one with his car, seeing as he bought it used

one more thing, for the clutch packs in my locker. i will be replacing them so i heard something about soaking them in either the lube or the friction modifier overnight? anybody heard of this and if so which do i soak it in. thanks in advance

And go with a petroleum based gear oil instead of a synthetic.

That's what I did but not sure it's right in all cases.

You guys using straight petroleum lube convert your cars back to breaker points too?

I took STL's advice and that oil works great. I went with RP Syn as well.

Funny...

But, the point is that synthetic does not adhere to the ring gear as well as dino oil does. It is actually too slick, and has a tendency to provide less lubrication that a good petroluem oil. You go ahead and do whatever makes you happy, but I'll stick with what one of the best gear shops on the west coast did for me.

I always forget the name of the guy that does the work over at SD gear and axle. I had him change my gear oil and I talk to him at Barona. Although they, SD gear and Axle didn't do my gear install, they did say the shop that did my install did a very good job.

That's exactly what Ford Racing told my installer. I've been running 85W-90 conventional for some time now...

Who is the guy that does the work at SD? He drives the Ford Maverick at Barona. For some reason I am thinking his name is Brian or Keith.

Oh, him... I think he goes by "Bry", which is probably short for Bryan.
