Default Lightweight Shock Proof! HELP!!!

Hey guys, stupid question but i need help quick... I wanna make sure im getting the correct fluid here...

So at a local shop, I just called and asked if they had any Redline LW Shockproof 75W90 gear oil, and thats what i need for my 06 5 speed WRX, correct? Please... and thank you

by chance anyone can post a pic of the correct fluid bottle i need? I would appreciate it, i figure i would ask first instead of ruining something... thanks

if you want that oil, get 3 bottles plus 1 motul 300.
for rear, just use mobile 1 or motul 300.

I have to agree with Prodigy, there really is no reason for all the flamage that goes on in the nasioc forums lately. Not everyone is an expert at everything. If you want to offer some helpful advice, do so. Otherwise just keep yer mouth shut.

That said.... Prodigy, when I had my 5speed I was looking to go with the Lightweight Shockproof, but I talked directly to a rep from Redline and they said it really is designed for race only applications. You could put it in there to feel awesome, but you would probably be better off with their normal 75W 90. Personally I would go with the Motul 300 if you really want to spend big bucks.

Haha. You just /thread'ed your own thread.

Andrewtech runs 3 quarts of Lightweight Shockproof topped off with the Motul in their gearboxes, so I'd trust that. You can stick some Valvoline synthetic 75/90 in there instead of Motul if you can't find it, that's a fluid recommended by Dylan at DS1.

And yes, the rear diff will work great with a regular 75/90.

I agreee though.

At
least
he
didnt
post
like
this.

Prodigy, redline lightweight shockproof is 75w140. SUPERlightweight shockproof is 75w90. Heavyweight shockproof is 75w250. I'd go with lightweight, used it in my 5MT and it worked great.
