What gear oil in a Dana 30 with Aussie locker?

Hey guys, I just finished my 8.8 swap and used Lucas 75w140 synthetic in it. Just wondering if that would be alright for the front D30 with an Aussie locker, too. I know everyone has their preferred weight and brand, but I'd like to keep it the same front and rear if possible. Also, what is the capacity? I can't find a clear answer. I've read anywhere from 1.5-2.5 quarts.

I use any ole 80w-90 GL5 gear oil in mine and drive it daily.
