    Any off the shelf 80/90 weight. Mobil One is popular.

    80/90 is good for all 3?

    Yes. You don't have an true LSD so no worry with friction modifier and it won't harm a non LSD diff.

    The rear diff took 4 quarts. Does this sound right? The truck may have been on slightly unlevel ground but not much at all.. I think it calls for 3.12 is it safe to leave 4 quarts in it?? Thanks

    Get it on level ground and open the fill plug see what comes out then close it back up.
