Final Drive Oil

I have an 05 1100 Silverado and am wanting to change the oil in the final drive. I'm looking for something I can get at autozone so I don't have to drive the 60 miles to the dealership. I was just wondering what everyone was using. Thanks.

its just 80W90 sometimes called Hypoid gear oil (a beveled gear differential)

It doesnt take much, if you get a quart I think you can maybe change it twice in the next few years.
