Need some confirmation of differential and transfer case fluids
Before I order the fluids, I just want to get confirmation especially since the Mercedes 85W90 is expensive
To do the front and rear differentials, I will need Mercedes hypoid gear oil 85W90. From searching, I cannot find an alternative other than one other benzworlder who said he has used Mobil 1.
If there is an update on an alternative gear oil, please let me know. It looks like autohaus az has a liter for $37. I have to do this service on all the diffs on two Mercedes so it there is a cheaper source, please share.
For the transfer case, Noodles mentioned that Shell AFT 134 can be used. I just wanted to make sure this is still going to work. His post was from 5 years back
