You could use Castrol LSX90 or Penrite Limslip 85W140 or the Penrite Limslip 140.
There are NO filters, just get it hot, and drain it for about an hour, before refilling, and whilst refilling, turn the wheels, so the oil spreads out throught the axle tubes.

how much will it take


IRS or not? IRS diff's take 1.6L, and IIRC, the Live axle takes about 1.9L

Yeah, TQ95 is dearer than Dextron IID or III. If you use that in a 4sp, turns to grease......LOL
