I just drove down to my local Auto Zone, and sure enough, they had the Castrol Syntrax sitting on the shelf for under 10 bux.
when I go to the Autozone website, I only see the limited slip version. Looking at another site, there was a note stating that Castrol Syntrax could not be shipped within the US. I used the Amsoil hi pressure synthetic lubs for final drive and transmission at 6k because I could not find the spec'd version nearby here in the Florida Keys. I would use it if I could find it.

I've switched to Shell Aero 15/50 synthetic. Cheapest oil I could find. Five quarts for less than thirty bucks delivered to my door.
