yeah i will be purchasing that fancy transfer case oil tomorrow, just needed to confirm if redline 75w-90 was safe to put into my diff.
There is a lot of contradicting info with oils when it comes to e53's because the 2001-03 use different diff fluid where the 04-06 use different fluid since it equipped with x drive. (correct me if im wrong) but this fluid stuff is driving me crazy, no one really states if they are doing the oil change on pre 04 or after.. that goes for the diff and transfer case so its something to lookout for.
i had someone on here tell me to run ATF in my 04 e53 front/rear diff but good thing i didnt. the dude had an 02 e53 where as my diff will not take atf fluid.

as for the tranny i will be using dexron VI
