Blackstone comments:
This sample from the rear diff looks pretty good too. We're not sure if it's the factory fill or not, but regardless, these results don't point to any issues. Iron and chrome are higher than we saw from the front axle, but that's not anything to be concerned about. The rear diff typically sees quite a bit more use so it's common to see more metal in its oil. No contamination was found and the viscosity is in spec. Insolubles (solids) are pretty minimal at 0.1%. The TAN of 3.7 is still low enough to show no excess acidity. Nice pair of reports! Just check back in 20K miles or so.

Viscosity seems pretty low for a 140, I would have changed it too, even if the it looked fine. I guess it's the BITOG way!

Universal average for Iron is 731, so it's still well below the typical report for a Dana 44.

Presuming this is FF, the wear is not bad at all. After all, for FF, all the "break in" is still in there.
The average is 5.7ppm Fe / 1k miles. With break in metals still floating around after 62k miles.
I've seen younger Chevy engines shed that much Fe after several OCIs.
This isn't bad whatsoever.


The act of preventative maintenance, in and of itself, is FAR MORE important than brand/grade/base choices among lubes and filters.
- under maintaining something is akin to abuse/neglect; that can kill equipment by shortening the lifespan
- over maintaining something has never been proven to be anything but a waste of time and money
