what is everyone out there using to replace their auto tranny oil? I know there are problems with using synthetic oils for cars of this age due to the old rubber seals that are used to non-synth. Does this apply for the tranny as well? As far as I know, there are no synthetic oils used in this car from the factory..
any insights would be appreciated.

That is untrue. The synthetic oil is not the problem, it's the crud the synthetics clean off cause leaks.
