E30, manual trans and rear differential

What brand of 80w90 should I use in the trans and the rear diff? Also do I need to use a friction modifier in the limited slip rear diff? Only wondering coz I wanna change both of the fluids in them. Its a 1990 model year but it was actually built in 89

My two go to brands are Castrol and Mobil. Some people put in Redline or Royal Purple if they can find it. Personally I dont like Red Line and wont use it.
