Default Rear End Oil Replacement

Going to change the oil in the rear end out this week and take some pics to post and see what you guys think, getting a slight whine.

What gear oil should I buy and how much does it take to fill it up?

Any gaskets to replace?

Thumbs up

I use a straight 140W dino oil, with the LSD additive. I have it changed it every 50K, along with a new gasket

I used 140w SCHAEFFER'S GEAR Oil with the Auburn additive when I did my rebuild. Has been quiet ever since.
