    Gear wine??

    I have a 99 WS6 with richmond 4.10 gears and the wine from the gears is horrible!!! Is there anything I can do to quite it down? I was thinking thicker gear fluid maybe? However I have no idea what weight is already in the car? So what can I do to try and quite it down, or is that just the nature of the beast? ANy sugestions would be apprecited!

    Try some Royal Purple, Red line or Torco. Eveyone has there preference.
    I have used Royal Purple and its made a big difference in my Goat.

    I got a friend that has some 4.10s and they whine but its not real noticable, I know they are new gears, but did you try the Royal Purple w/ the GM additive???
