Where do you get that stuff?

Automatic FWD transmission. So only the front diff - edited my first post.

I like amsoil svo 75w-140 for my soob diffs. A little extra edge of protection. I wonder if maybe your previous post about some soob diffs getting chewed up is due to inadequate lube protection? Some pickup truck makers and others have come out with tsb's saying to replace the factory fill 75w-90 with a 75w-140.

i don't think so because it's only "newer" vehicles from what i'm seeing, which isn't much since front diffs don't blow that often. i've seen quite a few "newer" EJ stuff say 1996-2002 with blown front diffs, a couple last year. i actually can't recall seeing any pre-1995 with blown front diffs, which is even more odd by the fact that an older car with a blown diff is more likely to hit the selling block and be more visible than a newer vehicle.
