When I bought both the 83 & 84 the boots where all cracked up, within a small amount of miles the boots tore and the oil flooded out. So I rebuilt the axles and noting that inside the differential was quite dirty from metal & the fluid was pretty old, possibly original, I searched for a good temporary oil. I found a thread here about how Mobil 1 synthetic cleaned their diff out. So Mobil 1 I bought for both as temporary fluids, figure I'll leave them in for at least a few thosand miles then drain it and put the redline in. Mobil 1 is fine and dandy in my book, but I still like Redline better for differentials.
