    Oil for Rear Diff in 2004 wrx?

    Hi I've got a 2004 wrx and I'm about to get the transmission and rear diff oil changed. I've already got 5 qts of Subaru Extra S off Fredbeans for the gearbox but I was wondering what oil I should put in the rear diff?

    Would Mobil 1 or Valvoline 75w90 be ok?
    What about using the Extra S in the rear diff - does anyone use that?

    I put Valvoline 75w90 in both my front trans and rear diff--it works fine.

    Same goes in both. Pretty sure the stickies /\ cover that. Should say in the owners manual as well.
