Red face differental Gear oil - Lucas or Royal Purple?

Hi folks,
Need to know what you are using with 4:56 gears upgrades.
SO....
My question do you use Lucas diff gear oil syn 75-90W, which I can purchase here.
or
Royal Purple diff gear syn oil?

What is your recommendations and why?

Problem is I cannot get Royal Purple diff oil in Saskatoon, Sask. Canada.
But...I can order it from the USA.

Please advise?

Amsoil seems to be a pretty good choice. Read all about different Gear Oils in a study commissioned by Amsoil, in the following thread posted by Subdriver (Subdriver is a supporting Vendor associated with Amsoil).

A new paper is out. I have it in PDF format and forgot to send it to the house. I've been told that the fluid GM put in our differentials did not do well at all. I'll try to remember and send to the house and post tomorrow.
