I just bought a tranny w/ LSD and I was wondering which oil is "ok" or "good" to run?

Someone recommended to me GM Syncromesh; but that shits like $15/quart.

Which oil do you use?

Right now I'm using Honda MTF in it.

Buy some RP 10w30 and it should be good! I bought some penzoil syncromesh at autozone. I think its the same at the GM syncromesh.

BTW Gm Synchromesh is like $6-$7 a quart at vatozone.

MAKE SURE it's the one with friction modifiers. The last stuff I got was the stuff without and well.......I'm on my second transmission.

Ill swing by Vatozone and checkout what they have.

I've read running synthetic oil in the trans isnt the "BEST" for it because it creates a film strip on the syncros etc..

But isnt that what its supposed to do? lol

Thats good to know. So far I don't feel any grinds.

There is a whining noise coming from the trans (assuming its the lsd cause this is what I've heard)

Self clearance = replace the diff bearings.

Supertech 10w-30 non-synthetic. I'm trying the Supertech 10w-30 high mileage right now. Going to run it for the next fluid change as well then see how the lab results compare to the regular 10w-30.

So you think I should run Walmart 10w30?

After talking with a friend I ended up going with 10w40 Mobile clean 5000.

While changing the oil I noticed I've already ripped BOTH axle boots :/

Thats what the noise was (most likely)
