Detroit trans fluid 75W-90

this is supposedly the exact same fluid that MB uses at the dealer, just under the Detroit brand (MB owns Detroit). You can usually only buy a barrel from MB part sites but this is the 1 Gallon version. Was hard to find but worth it if you only want to use MB spec fluids

Power steering fluid for 1998 G320?
I've got a bottle of CHF 11S on the shelf from a previous German vehicle I owned.

Newbie question: When it comes to the fluid for diffs, is there any different considerations to be made when looking at my 1998 463 vs. a newer or older model? In other words, are there any models or model years that stand out as needing anything specific, or are the weights and specs standard for all Gs?
