LSD pre-mix

Recommended Posts

Looking on the shelf at gear lube I notice that some of the containers say LS, for Limited Slip Differentials.


Can I trust the pre-mix or should I just buy regular gear lube and add the friction modifier myself?

You have to read the container.

Years ago, the Castrol I was using said "for limited slips", then the back of the container said:

"good for topping off", or something to that extent.


Meaning: if you already have an axle, with the friction modifier in it, and it's low, use this stuff.



Personally, I would only trust it if it said "includes friction modifier".
