    85-140 wt Gear Oil is what is recomended for the lockrites used in warm climates.
    75-90 for colder climates.
    I have noticed mine run a lot quiter if I run the 85-140

    Call 1-800-LOCKERS I'm sure they would send you a owners manual.

    Normal gear oil is fine, that is what I use in mine. I think only limited slip units with clutch plates need special oil.
