What kind of fluid should I use for the rear axle on my m 400?

According to the 76 Manual any GL-5 gear lube will work. Mopar Part # 3744994 is the oil recommended but it is just a GL-5 in the 80w 90 range.

It's a Dana 70. 80w90 is fine.

I think I'm running 85w-140 but 75w-90 would be just fine.
