Long story short, I"m tired of going around to autozone and o'reilly looking for gear oil. Since I'm ordering online, why not go with amsoil, right?

I have a few questions. First, what is the capacity of the front and rear differential?

Second, front required 80w-90 and rear is 75w-90, correct? Why the 5 weight difference between front and rear? WHy didn't nissan just choose 75w-90 all around?

I ask such a simple question because I'm ordering online and I"m finding sooooo many conflicting posts about how much is required. Some say 1 quart, some say 2.5. I can't find a solid answer

Ooooh. I see. I hastily clicked each oil and didn't take the time to scroll down a bit and read the little text block. THey have a page where they show each oil they offer with the weight and I hastily clicked what I needed. Thanks for the heads up.

One thing to check is which rear axle do you have. if you have the m226 rear you will need the 140w oil, thus I assume you have the c200.

I don't really care about the 5w difference either. i think 75-90 is what I run in the front as it is more common.
