    question for anyone that might know, I'm going to be doing my front and rear diff fluid changes In my 2014 1500 with the anti slip rear. I'm using amsoil severe gear oils as Ive always used amsoil and love them. also I cant get redline anywhere in my state. amsoil says it has the additives for LSD rear ends but if I experience chatter or slip, add the their non slip additive. I ordered some of that additive with the fluids. my question, is there any harm in just adding some of the anti slip additive right off the bat? I don't really want to chance any slip or chatter. I'm doing my truck and my wifes tuck (same exact truck) at the same time and was going to add half of the bottle to each rear diff.

    Imo Sir , I'd just use the Amsoil without the additive in the rear end then go to a paved parking lot and do several full wheel lock turns right and left with your window down and no radio , if you hear chatter then go home and add the additive and repeat the above process ....

    Not sure if the extra additive would have negative results , but if Amsoil says it has it already I wouldn't add any unless needed .

    Remember you won't get 100% of the old oil & additives out so you're already starting with a bit of additives.

    Redline said they had it already as well , mine has not chattered and I've got about 25k on the RL , if Amsoil says they have it I'd say you'll be good . Wouldn't hurt to have the anti-slip additive on hand though

    If you haven't done so already check out my Original Post #1 here

    I can't speak for the Amsoil with the additive but I've used Redline several times over the years and I know others that have had my same results with the Redline gear oil .

    Thanks Nick , glad to see you on this thread as well Sir !!
