I'm a big fan of Amsoil and have ran it in my CTS V from the engine oil, to the trans, and diff fluid. I haven't had a chance to check my rear diff on this car yet, but GM is well known for underfilling them by a LOT on other high performance models, so they're worth a check. I'm VERY well versed in the auto and manual trans. I have a built 6L90 which is a step up in my other car. Changing the trans fluid regularly in cars that are driven hard is essential in the longevity of these 6Ls and the eDiffs are going to need some regular love too. If I can help with anything, let me know guys!
