Default Front diff oil???

Probably a stupid question, but does the transmission and front differential in WRX's share the same oil? What about the center differential?

I looked in the maintainance section of the owner's manual and it mentions nothing about the front differential or center differential.

5MT - gearbox and front diff share fluid, center diff is a sealed unit with its own viscous fluid

4EAT - transmission (ATF) and front diff (gear oil) are separate

pretty sure it *is* in the owners manual

Hmm... so does it matter for the front diff that I put in redline lw shockproof oil as half of the fluid to fix a grind in my transmission?
