There is a Valvoline synthetic blend of 80w-90 that should be fine to use. If you are in a colder climate, you might want to use the 75w-80.

Why does oil turn pinkish on chevy venture 2002

Is it synthetic blend? I've never heard of regular oil ever turning pink, not even when contaminated with other fluids. Have it looked at by someone. If it's synthetic, maybe it's normal?

AMSOIL or Mobil 1 synthetic oils. Either one. AMSOIL claims to be the best order to meet the standards "all" manufacturers of synthetic oils have to have the minimum oil content mixture to achieve the quality standards.

SJ or SL or ILSAC 5W-30 is the manufacturers recommended engine oil.

How many guarts of 75/90 gear oil does a 1999 silverado 4x4 rear end take

this is going to depend on a bunch of variable, engine, ring gear size etc. Try this site, you can pick all your variables.

If you don't know what size ring gear my best recommendation would be buy 4-5 quarts and then return the full one(s) that you have left. I have a 2007 chevy 2500 hd with the duramax and I think mine took just a shade under 3 quarts.
