What differential fluid for 95 E300D with ASD?

The FSM specifies that, for vehicles with limited slip differentials (which I understand ASD is a version of), "special hypoid gear oil SAE 90" should be used. Would Mobil 1 75w90 nonetheless be a good choice? Or should I use something else? This is for the 95 E300D.

06 E320 CDI "Benson", Platinum Blue, 180k mi, Stage 1 tune
06 E320 CDI "Rutherford", Black, 153k mi, Stage 1 tune
91 300D "Otis", Smoke Silver, 133k mi, wastegate conversion

19 Honda CR-V EX 12k mi

I wouldn't use Mobil 1 75 w90. I would use MB spec 235.7, 85 w90.
Was part number 001 989 17 03 but now 001 989 33 03.

Pelican Parts - Product Information: 001-989-33-03-12-M22

But part number 001 989 33 03 also references 75 w85. I would choose 85 w90 though.
