You need 1.00 for diff and 1.95 for gearbox

Wow I haven't been around in a while & looks whats happened, confusion over oil :lol:

Gearbox = 75w90 GL4 - i.e. Redline MT90 or Motul Gear300

Auto = Toyota T-IV or Motul Multi ATF

Diff (open or standard LSD) 75w90 GL5 or 75w140 GL5 - i.e. Motul Gear300 or Gear Competition etc
