Recomended thicker oil in the rear diff? 2015 Camaro SS

Hello im currently on the stock fluid but my gaskets are leaking fluid on the rear diff. I am planning a full gear and new seals rebuild soon, but wanted to fill with a heavier oil to avoid quick leaks while I source the parts.

What is a good recomended rear diff fluid that is thicker than the norm to use?

Thank you.

you need new axle seals...these diffs use synthetic due to tight clearances....I upgraded to Royal Purple...good luck!
