I know it reccomends 50w for the oil bath but is the 80w or 90w sufficient? It's nice with the needle nose squeeze bottles for the small cap!!

i'm using Mobile 1 90W gear oil in mine.

I second the gear oil (90W).

Also use gear oil......over 5,000 miles no problems. Good enough to protect all the parts in a differential it will certaimly handle wheel bearings.

I put 75W140 in mine. It runs cool. Coming off of a 10k ft pass, lotsa brakes, hubs were only warm. Barely warm after a hiway trip too.
Oil that came out of them looked like 40-50wt and wasn't gear oil, smelled like motor oil.
