front and rear diff

Ok i have a 94.5 powerstroke and noticed i was alittle low in the front so i put 80/90 non synthetic,, ok well i was about to change the back and i pulled the plug and noticed around half inch of silver sludge so now ive decided instead of siphon out and put new in i should pull the plate off and clean it out good,, What do you all think? also what weight of gear oil should i use in the back? someone said to use synthetic in the back,, my buddy which is head mechanic at a big contruction compony in myrtle beach said to use 80/90 the front and back and it will be fine... hes got alot of service trucks so im not sure now what to do,, let me know fokes

I would recommend pulling the cover and check everything while doing this service. For fluids, AMSOIL makes the best gear lube on the market today, it is called Severe Gear. For your truck you need the 75W-90 front and rear. I don't say this because I can; I say this because there is a study to back it up. Read about it here. They recently updated the formulation and improved its lubrication qualities even more.

I would get 2 qts for the front and 4 for the back. This might give you a little extra but now you will have some for top offs.

If I can help with products, please let me know.

Take care,

i changed mine and used amsoil severe gear can;t remember whether i used the 75-90 or the heavier one. if you have a limited slip make sure you add the friction modifier or whatever the extra additive is.

so you think i should drain out the 80/90 gear oil that i got from walmart??? I put it in the front... i was thinking i would leave this in there for the winter and looking into taking the plate off the back and getting the 75/90 for the back... what do you think?? im sure 75 to 80 wouldnt be that much difference would it??

Was it synthetic 80/90? To me it would depend on the cold pour point to ensure you are not going to be too thick during the winter.

Here is your truck from the AMSOIL Look Up Guide. I highlighted the Front and Rear Diffs. It calls for 80w-90 in the back but AMSOIL also recommends the Severe Gear 75W-90 which is the best gear lube around right now. That is why I went with that recommendation for you.

You will be fine with the 80/90 until you can make the switch in the spring. It is just thicker oil.
