Question Lockers & oils

Sooo after years of always running welded diffs, we have a truck with auctual lockers in them, sooo my question is, what type of gear oils do u guys use in your diffs? I've always used standard 80-90W gear oil in most diffs along with a LS additive if it calls for it,

What do you use in a Detroit locked diff?

What do you use in a e-locked diff?

What do you use in a lunch box locked diff?

What do you use in a air locked (arb) diff?

Additives??


Lets hear your thoughts,

Nick

Kinda thought the only thing that needed an additive was the clutch style limited slip because just using straight 80w90 doesn't allow them to slip. Every thing else just needs Extreme Pressure Gear oil

That's what I wasn't sure about terry, when I had my diffs welded I always just ran regular 80-90w and thought nothing of it, but detroits and what not I don't have a clue

Same with some old transmissions I know if u run Lucas gear oil in a scout t-18, u won't be able to shift , too thick of oils, but at the same time 90-140W is too thin, 80-90W is too thin, what about a HD 50W gear oil or something along thoes lines?
