GM says dextron VI for your trans and 80W-140 synthetic for your rear differential. when you do it is all a matter of how hard you are on the car.

I thought Dextron VI spec wasn't phased in until 2006?

there is a TSB about this. according to GM "Current and prior automatic transmission models that had used DEXRON III must now only use DEXRON VI."
dextron VI is a much better fluid than III anyway.
