Final Drive Oil

OK, the new final drive is at 600 miles. I am ready to change the oil for the first time.
The book stated 90 gear oil.
Can I use a synthetic at 600 miles. If so, what do you guys suggest on brand.

What other parts do I need.
Is there a washer needed?

Thanks,
Stefan

I have been using Mobil 1 75W/90 gear oil in the rear drive and transmission for 50,000mi.(changed to it at 600mi.) and never had any problems. I figure if it works in this desert heat, it will work anywhere.

You should use new crush washers. Check your part numbers on the parts fiche at: www.webparts.com
