Gear oil recommendation for final drive

What gear oil do you guys recommend for the final drive. I'm thinking its time I changed mine. Is there a particular brand people use over another?

What does it say on the final drive? Just use SAE 90 oil.

I only understand what I don't understand.

The manual calls for 90 weight over 41 degrees and 80 weight under 41 degrees. I have used all the high price stuff and now only use SuperTech 75/90. Works well.
