Not going to touch on the brand debate but I personally run synthetic in everything but the engine.......

75-90 front and rear (if you dont pull)
75-140 rear (if you often pull loads)

Personally, I ran 75-140 in mine all the time and it was a daily driver that got pulled with just a few times a year.

Also, if you have a limited slip rear diff you need to add friction modifier.....

Not sure what you mean if there is a difference between 75W and 85W? Obvisouly, they are two different oils but whether it really matters to the differential.....I wouldn't think so.

Yeah, some have the LS additive in them. Just make sure you read the container.
