The Shock-proof goes into the differential. I heard that its really good so ill pick some of that stuff up. As for gear oil, what is highly recommended? I need something that can handle a trans with 91k miles on it. Thanks for any help.

Tranny oil

I'm happy with Redline MT90. I used regular redline (75W90) and gear grinded all the time when I shift fast. Mobil 1 did that too.. After changing to MT90, i don't have that problem anymore.
My tranny liked Royal Purple also.

I have redline MT90 and am very happy with it. Thei shifts are smoother and since quite of few people use it on the SE-R list I have confidence it is a good oil. NO as far as our differential or limited slip -----it is all sealed so you do not have to worry about a limited slip additive. Anyways just make sure it has a Gl-4 rating and it is ok for yelloe metals which MT90 is. I heared some other brands are Gl-4 and gl-5 but cause harm to our yellow metals in our tranny. Motul and Amsoil for our info I heard are the exact same oil. I read that somewhere on the SE-R website in the archives.
