if its rated GL4 it will be fine. the "yellow metal" corrosion issue has been pretty much addressed with the new oils. Check manufacturers web sites for specs and compatability, look for "activated sulphates" if it contains them , don't use in gearboxes.
Some dual-rated GL4/GL5 fluids are safe for yellow metals, but they should specifically say so in the specs, otherwise, assume it is not safe
