Differential oil and amsoil oil filter

Good evening everyone. Tomorrow i am doing an oil change on the truck and i will be going with amsoil 5w-30 synthetic. I saw that they have oil filters too. Do they work for the armada? If so what number because on their website they had a bunch of #s. Also i will be changing the front and rear differential oil. Which oil should i use to refill them?

Re: Differential oil and amsoil oil filter

Sorry i dont have a part number but Here is a thread I made regarding changing diff oils. It also contains other threads made by other members on the type of oil n procedures.

There are quite a few thread discussing the oil weight. I know that scr38 use strictly amsoil. So u a search on his sn maybe he post a part number. If not he will probably pop in and let u know.

Amsoil has 75w-90 for the diff oil. What is the difference between 75w-90 and 80w-90?
