Any GL5 should work. For something I dont want mess with again, I would use synthetic. If it has a clutch type posi you will need to add some friction modifier also. If you dont know what diff it is, you can add the modifier just in case, it wont hurt anything.

You can find the gear ratio by counting how many driveshaft turns it takes to rotate both rear tires exactly one rotation... 3 1/2 turns = 3.50 ratio... etc... Or count the number of gear teeth on pinion and ring gears and divide if you have it apart...

With one rear tire jacked up and one still on the ground and the tranny in neutral, you can effortlessly spin the one up tire and driveshaft by hand with an open rear end... it will be difficult to impossible with a posi rear end...
