Attempting to change out the transmission fluid and differential fluid.

Recommendations of which fluid to use. The vehicle is stock, so fluids I can obtain at the local Kragen (or maybe Costco) would be helpful.

Also, for those that have done this before, any advice and things to watch out for?

This will be my first time attempting it on this car, so any advice would be appreciated.

Fluids

I got the following approved fluids from the various owners manuals:

Auto Transmission: Mercon/Dexron III ATF

Rear End: Hypoid Gear Oil SAE 90
Limited Slip Differential

Don't forget to do the transmission filter.
