W22 Front Axle Lube

Doing pre-winterization maintenance and noticed that my W-22 front axle lube is a little low.
What are folks using as a lube these days?
Thanks

IIRC, the manual called for straight 90W. I think I used Chevron.

How about 80-90W?

Can't find the straight 90W in GL-5 rating but there are plenty of options at 80-90W. Do folks know if this can be substituted and mixed with what came from the factory?

Found some answers

Did a search on this forum and found lots of answers but seems like most folks just go to the 80-90W

The 80-90w is what I used when I replaced the rotors on my W-22, but that job requires hub removal so there was no mixing with old oil. I sure you don't have anything to worry about with adding the 80-90w, careful not to overfill.

While I agree that removal of all the old oil is best, as long as the original oil is not contaminated, I have no issue is sucking out or draining the old oil, filling with new. Repeat the change process 2-3 times. Drive between changes if possible. Total is still less than a quart.


Contaminated with water, metal, etc, and no question, the whole assembly needs to come apart to be serviced properly. Different than just straight Preventive Maintenance.

Thanks Folks

Going in shop next week to pull brakes apart for lube. When it comes home, I plan on draining and refilling both sides. Also time for the Transynd change and filter.

W22 Front Axle Lube

The marine industry has several GL-5 90W oils. However, my Freightliner chassis calls for a multi-weight.
