''but the dealers suck....."

I resemble that remark, granted some do, whether Airstream or Auto.

But like a lot of things today competition is changing the market.
I worked at some marginal ones, it didn't take long to realize that fact and move on. Take a look at the service shop, in most cases the cleaner more organized the shop the better experience. PRIDE

So when is this..."old enough to know better" supposed to kick in?

Most dealers don't even know there is a special lube P/N. When I went to the dealer for the groaning noise they wanted to replace my rear brakes. I did my own research and ran across a QS forum and found people had the same noise. From what I have found, the so called "special lube" @ $45/qt is just nothing but synthetic lube w/ an additive for the limited slip already added in it.
Quadrasteers have different style lockers than all other GM trucks (remember QS trucks have Dana 60 center sections not the more common 14 bolt). The lockers in QS trucks are an auburn clutch pack style, the reason for the need of the additive just like the old posi-tracks from years past.

It sounds like the same problem my old man had is in f350, did a rear end service with 75-140 red line full synth that had the fiction modifier, he drove it mybe 200 miles and the tires were cherping constantly, I told him he probably needed to add the friction modifier and after some convensing he did and the noise went away.

So mybe a rear end service is in yoru future just make sure to use the right oil and possible modifiers.
