I would go with the Amsoil gear lube and friction modifier its great stuff. I use it in my 00Excursion, 87GT, 01Bullitt, and 04Cobra.

Crow Magnum ( great name by the way) - Using Ford fluids in the rear does one thing - it eliminates ANY problem with warranty work on the rear end gears. Using anything else may, depending on the dealer, give Ford a reason not to honor it.

Your choice.

Your choice.

Wrong.

There is a Federal law that states a Dealer and manufacturer must prove that any change was the sole cause of a warrantee problem to deny coverage.

Not much of an an issue as it once was.

Most lube producers have their own warrantee anyway.

I know Amsoil does.

Just picked up 75W-145 and FrMod from them for a Bullitt. Should be no problem.

Not sure! But Lucy is in the Ford dealer getting 4oz of modifier 'pushed' in her backside!

Hope it's not sore, cause I'm gonna want to ride her hard when I pick her up!

Guess no one liked that comment... The friction modifier made the groaning go away. YAY.

This should be in another forum anyway... maintenance question...

ADMIN??? Wanna move it?

Sorry to hi-jack your thread! But how often should I change the rear end oil in my Bullitt?

The owner's manual doesn't even specify a change for normal driving. And I don't think I've ever changed mine in my regular daily drivers. But the book also says to change at 60,000 miles for severe use (dirt, dust, stop & go driving, towing a trailer, etc.). These fluids are cheap insurance and I change both tranny and rear end fluids in my Mazda MX-5 every 25 - 30,000 miles. I drive it fast and hard and when it's changed, I notice a slight difference in how it shifts and drives. I've only got 11,000 on the B but plan on doing it at 20 or 25. I'll know more when I see the color of the fluids. Others here with more mileage and experience may have a better feel for when it should be done. To some I may be waiting too long

P.S. - don't forget to add 4 ounces of Friction Modifier! Keeps the dying whales away!

Mobil 1

The latest Mobil 1 75w-140 LS has has a friction modifier already added.
I use it in my 04 Ranger FX4 Level 2 (daily driver)which requires synthetic 75w-140 in the stock thorsen (sp?) rear end. No chatter or problems.

I just had my car serviced (starter died, stranded me 127 miles from home, but hey, that's ok...grrr!!) and they did the multipoint inspection thing. I was looking at the paperwork and it was recommended I change the fuel filter, well ok, but also that the rear differential fluid was found to be dirty/contaminated and needs to be changed. Huh? I found it in the paperwork - they never said anything or tried to sell me the services but somehow I find this hard to believe, at 33K miles???
