You may want to dip a magnet into the old fluid to see if it comes out "hairy"

I haven't looked but worth a look if you haven't .... does our rear ends [front n rear] need anti friction fluid added ??

additional BTW's .. my Diesel peacup calls for anti friction modifier and I add it one ounce at a time as all of the rearends require a lil different amount do to how tight the friction plates are [or better said how worn] .. add too much and you'll have no limited slip

name is Gary or hey you if ya forget

2009 Prowler XTZ , couple things added here and there
'83 CJ7 / SBC + whole lot added here and there
'01 Dodge / Cummins / Dually, a ton of stuff added here and there

INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE NEWBIES ...
1. Bring in a good load of firewood for the pit
2. start the morning coffee , strong but not burnt / boiled down , IMPORTANT start it early as many of us old farts get up early !!
3. sit a spell and swap some lies with the best of us
