T-Case I used Mobil-1 at whatever weight was called for. Front and Rear I used Chevron Delos because its full synth and cheap.

Transmission I used Maxlife back when it was available from Wal Mart. I could get it 20$/gallon instead of 25+/qt. If you have a Toyota dealership locally that prices WS reasonably its worth getting the real stuff. However, around here dealers charge an arm, leg, and first born for everything.... So Maxlife it is.

I got WS for around $11/qt but only because I found an online dealer that had it for that much. I think my local dealer wanted like $16/qt but they were willing to price match

Is it ok to mix different differential oils? I had my front and rear differential fluids changed at a Toyota shop about 2 years ago. I have to replace my two front axles and therefore will loose some diff fluid in the process. I have some Mobil1 Synthetic and Valvoline Synthetic 75-90 fluid. I don't know what is in the diff but is it ok to top it off with synthetic (ie. mixing different fluid types)?

Diffs, transfer case, and engine are all Amsoil. Transmission is Toyota WS.

Work fine for me.
