Default Differential Fluid - Mobil 1

Good Afternoon,

I've read a bunch of threads about what diff fluid to use, and I landed on Mobil 1 75-90 due to the availability of it. That being said, the only Mobil 1 75-90 I can find is the LS (limited slip) variant. Just making sure that it is safe to use this for my differential.

Thanks!

I assumed it would be fine, but figured I'd double check. Thanks for the quick responses!

From what I have read no harm using 75-90 or 75-140 for street use.

Mobile 1 75-140 is great for hot 95+ Fahrenheit days at the track.

75w-140 in the rear, and Honda MTF in the tranny. 140 if you track the car or live in a hot climate.
