The trans takes an ATF fluid. I run Royal Purple in mine, and I did notice an easier shifting. Call me crazy but before it was a little tough going from first to second, but after that it cleared it right up. Could have just been old fluid, who knows?

And the rear is a 140w-90? I think? dont quote me on that.

Do you have a limited slip in the rear?
