200 ml is too much, should be 180 ml.

2009 here. Misread the original how to and filled to 220...whoops, looks like I will be doing this again this week.

What are you all using to lubricate the rubber gaiter? Will the Moly 60 work fine? Do we need to do anything to the speed sensor, other than wipe it down and clean the o-ring?

Use Staburags NBU 30 PTM grease on the front mating surface of the rubber gaitor, Moly 60 is better than nothing but not nearly as resistant to water.

Clean the speed sensor and install a new o-ring with a drop of clean gear lube on it.

The Staburags stuff is hard to find so you may try another brand of water-proof grease that isn't harmful to rubber like Bel-Ray waterproof grease.

Clean the speed sensor and install a new o-ring with a drop of clean gear lube on it, make sure to only use clean oil.

The grease for the mating surface is just to keep the outside elements out right?

I'll pick up a new o-ring for the speed sensor and drain plug this week.

Does anybody flush the gear cases with ATF before filling with fresh GL-5?

I do.
