    Wondering about my gear oil

    I have heard that the redline heavy shock proof oil is to much for a factory 10 bolt and my neighbor said it also may be causing some of my whine with 373 gears. Just curious if this is true and if i should go back to using regular gear fluid?

    RedLine is fine and would cause no issues you describe. With that said I would use either Amsoil or Mobil1 myself.

    What weight gear oil do you recommend for the 10-bolt?

    PS. I see you are a Texas fan (& alumni also?). Y'all have a good team this year. Assuming y'all remain undefeated, who do you think will be your opponent for the BCS Championship? Who would you prefer as your opponent?

    Post AMSOIL OE gear lube replacement recommendation

    For a 2000 CHEVROLET CAMARO with 5.7L 8-cyl Engine:

    Rear Differential: All Temps......75W-90 GL-5

    Capacity: 3.6 pints

    Also, referencing back to this Older Thread, Sarge said he uses Amsoil Severe Gear 75W-140 with a bottle of Amsoil Slip Lock Differential Additive in his modified 10.90 second GTO.

    But you might ask Sarge to be sure. I know he changes his lubricants almost as much as many of us change our underwear, LOL.

    I tried the Redline in my old 10 bolt and was getting one wheel burnouts. I feel dino gear oil is just fine in there. I use any ole 80/90 and just change every other year.
