It'll be in your owners manual. If you don't have one, you can download a pdf of it for free from https://my.gmc.com/home

There have been many, many discussions about this so you might search just a little bit. You also didn't mention which rear end you have, although most have the G80. If it's the G80, then the simple answer is to use the official GM "grape juice" lube. Otherwise, it needs some, but not too much, friction modifier. Along with many others, I've had good results with Mobil 1 75-90 synthetic "LS" lube (I'm on the road and can't tell you exactly what's on the bottle). There are other good solutions, and some that will cause problems (e.g., chattering).

This is what I use in the front and rear differentials, no issues.
