HOW TO LUBRICATE THE REAR AXEL

1970 Pontiac GTO

I'm completing an overhaul of the car. This rebuild will not be used for racing purposes, only for show and sunday drives.
I want to properly lubricate the rear axle. What brand/specs of lubricants and servicing processes do you recommend?

Do you have a standard diff or a LSD fitted?

A standard one I think. I've got a "normal" gto with a three-speed gearbox.

If you have a standard diff, (you can turn one wheel when it is jacked up off the ground) use 80W-90 gear oil, there is nothing else you need to worry about.
