Oil Analysis Comments:
The front differential on this Tahoe appears to be in very good shape, with low wear metal readings giving us no reason to suspect any internal problems. Iron, indicative of steel wear, is exceptionally low for the miles. The oil tested to be in good condition, as well, with viscosity appropriate for 75W/90, and no sign of significant water or dirt contamination. Solids (insolubles) read low at 0.2%, indicating very little oxidation due to heat, and the TAN of 2.3 shows that little acidity built up. Feel free to try 60,000 miles next time and check back then to see the effects.

The [email protected]*C appears highly sheared from it's nominal 16.8 cSt .... I would replace said oil well before 45K miles.

You may want to use 75W-110 in the future if the shearing continues to give you a little more of a buffer.
