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.
