    Gearbox and rear diff oil change questions

    Hi everyone, I'm looking to change the oil in my gearbox and my rear diff on my TQS but wasn't too sure what oil to go for, can anyone advise me what oils etc they have used?

    Thanks J

    Buy genuine oil mate, it does not cost the earth ! If the old factory filled oil lasted this long, why chance it with lesser products ?
