i just remembered one thing.  the differential oil was not synthetic,
at least not in my '90 v8.  i had that changed to synthetic a while
ago even though my dealer (univ) assured me that i didn't have to do
it.  more reason for me not to ever step foot in barrier.

are you sure they changed the tranny fluid and not the diff oil?
