Default G80 axle oil

Struggling to find a definite answer here.

What oil should I use in a G80/1041 locker?

I keep seeing references to Redline GL5 75/90, but the only i keep finding says on the bottle "for LSD" which I'm told isn't good for the G80?

I used this last time from O'Reilly:
Masterpro synthetic 75w90 GL5 made for conventional diffs.
