'97 4x4 RAM 1500 - Transfer Case & Diff Fluids
Well, My RAM is edging near 80,000 miles and to this day, I have never changed the transfer case or diff fluids. I know that the rear is a limited slip, but didn't know what was the best fluids to be dropping in there.
For the Diffs, I assume that it's 80w90 with a friction enhancer for the limited slip in the rear and just regular 80w90 for the front, but want your guys opinions on what fluids to buy. I intend on going all synthetic with the diffs.
The transfer case gets ATF and I think I have a gallon jug of ATF+3 Type 7176 around here somewhere... Would there be any benefit to going to say Amsoil ATF pure synthetic? Let me know what you think and please let me hear your experiences!
Also, do I need new diff cover gaskets or do you guys recommend some good RTV sealer? I have been thinking about getting one of those hand pump vac setups for awhile, would I be able to use something like that and not pull the covers off?
