Any other additive besides the gear oil?
Forgot to mention it is a cone type.
they sell a gear additive called whale oil. It will prevent your rear to chatter going around a curve.
I used to have a small bottle of Mopar Limited Slip Additive. You think gear oil smells bad? You never caught a whif of this stuff!!!
I only use Amsoil synthetic severe gear
i agree. i almost threw up after taking a wiff of that shit!
you can get limited slip additive from any autoparts store, but if you use synthetic gear lube, no additive is required as those oils are formulated for limited slip differentials from the factory.
i agree, never used synthetic with a slip differential only with a spool.
Looking atcone vs clutch i can understand a additive for clutch but dont know why cone type needs it. But I just do it.
The additive helps reduce chatter even in the cone units but STP will do it too and it actually works better in the newer Trac-lock pieces of crap....
Go right to the source. Your dodge dealer has the Sure-Grip additive.
and spend twice as much for the same shyt? naah, i will pass
how much of the stuff goes in with the gear oil?
I use the "ferd" stuff and it's like 8 bucks for a 6-7 oz. bottle and use the whole bottle.
Just FYI, the cone type does not require additive. EDIT: I went on the Auburn site and they actually DO recommend either the GM or Ford additive, so I stand corrected.
That gear oil is only used in clutch type sure grip.
That's what I thought. Auburn does not make a clutch type, but they recommend additive in their cone type.
Buy the Dana or Spicer additive the smell is so bad you will pass out. Use one pint of this per 2 Quarts 85-140
I'm probly a retard and am doing it wrong, but I just go to Pep Boys and get whatever gear oil is recommended for limited slip. Has worked for decades.
You ain't a tard at all. As long as the gear oil specifically says for limited slip, it's fine. No additive needed cause it's already formulated in.
