Mobil 1 Synthetic Gear Lube

Where can I buy Mobil 1 Synthetic Gear Lube in Los Angeles, CA? Preferably a retail store.

Have you had trouble finding it? I'd be amazed if you couldn't find it at any given chain auto parts store. Heck, I found it in Omaha at Advance Auto.

If you are really stuck, there are some web-based distributors who'll ship you Mobil products. I did that once to get Mobil 1 ATF before it came to town.

I don't know if you have AutoZone in LA. This is where I bought mine. I think its terrible. The noise in my differential went up when I used it. I switched back to original MB fluid in less than a week. Another product I suggest is Red Line differential/ manual transmission fluid. They are excellent.

I put it in both my vehicles and found no difference...so I guess I like it? If you really can't find any PM me and I'll send some along to you, no problem.

In the Los Angeles area, all Pep Boys, Kragens and AutoZones have it. AutoZone is the cheapest.

Thanks guys. I found it at Autozone. Over the phone they said it was 6.99 per quart but turned out to be 4.99. I had tried Kragen and Pep Boys and both said they didn't carry it.
