Sterling Diff Oil

I have a 1997 F-250 with the Sterling rear diff. What oil weight should I use. I've searched the forums, however most are for 1999 and newer. Thanks for any help.

It should be the same. I think all the Sterlings take 75W140 synthetic.

There seems to be alot of different opinions out there, as I recently had the same question.

My FORD manula calls for 75W-140. So I am ordering some Royal Purple, in that weight.

I "heard" there was a TSB to change it, but I can't find it, and I never saw it posted.
