    I donlt know about fluid, but any quality gear oil should do it. Aslong as it matches what GM recomends, or you can just get the dealer stuff and bottle of additive. Mine took the better part of two bottles I think.
    Also be patient There isn't a whole lot of room to get the fluid in. So it could take a while.

    I use moble1 can't remember the weight though it's been awhile just a guess I think it's 75w-90 but be sure you use the lsd additive with it.

    sweet, then ya I guess it would be pointless and prob bad to add it in on top of that.

    Just about all quality synthetic gear oil's already have the friction modifier in it. You just need to read the bottle, RP is not the only one to offer that.
