ZF5 fluid options

I know that it calls for Mercon V synthetic fluid but what other options may I have that would quiet up the noise and smooth up my shifts?

I think I'm gonna' try Schaeffer's 204SAT. The noise of the new clutch is almost unbearable, hoping it will quiet it some.

Finally got around to changing to the synthetic fluid (used 5 qts as suggested), you wouldn't think it was the same truck. So quiet I can hear the ole' lady complaining from the passenger seat now.

A good trick for that is to turn your radio to a talk station and turn the volume down so you can barely hear it, if you're really concentrating on listening to the radio you won't hear a word she's saying and it's a lot less obvious than cranking the radio up.

In my '96 thought the syncros where on the way out, would grind on 3-2 shift so drained and filled with Redline MTF 5 litres, truck now has 460K kilometres on it and is fine.....guessing 150K Kilometres on that oil!!
